GHGSat Unveils New
Satellite Imagery

This image was taken in In August 2018, by GHGSat’s
demonstration satellite Claire, over two years after her launch in June 2016. GHGSat detected emissions of 
methane, an important greenhouse gas, from an oil & gas facility in the Permian Basin.

Claire captures an array of over 200,000 atmospheric measurements around an industrial facility in a few seconds. These measurements are processed to produce imagery showing a “heat map” of greenhouse gas concentrations from the facility.

GHGSat is committed to making more sample data available for evaluation by qualified parties. For more details, please email
