The Evaluation of Innovative Methane Detection Technologies (METHANE-1) document was developed to provide an overview of existing and emerging methane detection technologies as well as guidance regarding performance characteristics and parameters to consider in technology evaluation to enable regulators, facility owners and operators, and other users to evaluate, compare, and select suitable technologies that detect and quantify methane emissions from various segments of the oil and natural gas supply chain for a variety of applications, including compliance with existing and forthcoming methane emission (leak) regulations.
