Apache Corp. agreed on March 7 to expand its partnership with LongPath Technologies Inc. for continuous methane emissions monitoring in the Permian Basin.

“At Apache, we are committed to reducing emissions and were looking for a technology that provided real-time monitoring and volume quantifications,” Jessica Jackson, vice president of environment, health and safety, commented in a company release. “LongPath’s technology provides our teams with the data needed to achieve meaningful emissions reductions while meeting global energy needs in more innovative and sustainable ways.”

A subsidiary of Houston-based APA Corp., Apache has been operating in the Permian Basin of West Texas and southeast New Mexico since the 1990s. As of year-end 2020, the company had more than 7,000 wells covering a gross acreage position of 4.9 million acres in the Permian, according to its website.
