GHGSat & MethaneSAT

In a nutshell, MethaneSAT is a wide angle lens. GHGSat is precision.

MethaneSAT’s objective is to measure methane emissions from shale plays which can span thousands of square kilometers. Because of this each MethaneSAT pixel is approx. 1000m x 1000m. By comparison, GHGSat is designed to measure individual facilities, therefore each pixel is < 50m x 50m. So if MethaneSAT sees a few pixels of high methane concentrations, GHGSat can point its satellites to determine exactly which facility is leaking methane.

You can consider them to be complementary systems. MethaneSAT will tell all the operators in a region what their aggregate emissions are, while GHGSat provides individual operators with direct measurements of emissions from their facilities. Further, GHGSat is developing AI to predict facility-level risks of methane emissions, using all available data, including MethaneSAT.
