Interconnectedness is key to reducing costs and emissions in the oil and gas industry. As a result, many companies are turning to the Internet of Things (IoT), which can be used to detect the levels of harmful gases being detected, especially methane, to help solve efficiency and ESG problems.

Particle and Qube have partnered to provide IoT services and technology to clients to help them reduce CO2, methane and other harmful emissions from their worksites. In the recent webinar, "Prevent Leaks and Reduce Emissions," Cyril Bernard, Particle's enterprise account executive, and Eric Wen, COO of Qube Technologies, explained how IoT Is helping energy companies deploy continuous emissions monitoring technology.  

“We're able to provide a robust and flexible [system] essentially enabling technology that allows you and allows Qube to rapidly develop a solution that's very customized based on your needs,” Bernard said. 

In terms of emissions management, IoT can help solve issues pervading the oil and gas industry, including quantifying and reducing emissions, measuring air quality, complying with ESG standards and regulations, and repairing leaks.

IoT technology can be used in the worksites through environmental sensing, equipment monitoring and remotely controlling machinery. Companies like Particle and Qube accomplish this through continuous monitoring.
