Kodiak Gas Services, a provider of contract compression services, in partnership with Legend Energy Advisors announced the launch of EcoView, a proprietary data collection and high-fidelity transmission system that monitors emissions and streamlines efficiency for the company's compression assets.

Leveraging Legend's innovative software and hardware, EcoView will provide Kodiak comprehensive views of all operational data captured through over 150 sensors on its equipment, Kodiak said in a press release on Dec. 1.

"The development of EcoView offers our technicians, management, and clients an unprecedented ability to monitor operational data in real time and enhance our already industry-leading mechanical availability guarantee," said Mickey McKee, president and CEO of Kodiak. "With ESG initiatives front and center for the industry, this technology eliminates the guess work for our customers and drastically increases the accuracy of the data related to greenhouse gas levels reported by them."

Through 2022, Kodiak has committed a significant investment to EcoView as part of Kodiak's pledge to sustainably provide critical midstream infrastructure and related compression equipment and services for the U.S. energy sector. Kodiak units with EcoView will transmit real-time operations data every five seconds. Approximately one billion data points per compression asset per year is collected on site, interpreted within Legend's software and associated hardware, and transmitted back to cloud-based servers every five minutes.

"We are excited about the continued partnership with Kodiak and the future impact of EcoView," commented Dan Crosby, CEO of Legend Energy Advisors. "Together, we can provide Kodiak's customers with access to instantaneous operational visibility, unmatched anywhere else in the compression industry which will drive both environmental and financial sustainability."

On the heels of earning recognition in the private midstream category of Hart Energy's first-ever Energy ESG Top Performers Awards on Nov. 29, 2021, EcoView will enable Kodiak to make truly predictive maintenance a reality through future partnerships with machine learning companies, driving down costs, improving operational efficiencies and minimizing the equipment's environmental impact by reducing unplanned downtime incidents.

In 2022, Kodiak will enhance the capabilities of EcoView by adding the ability to track leaks and other sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Also, in 2022 through incremental, enhanced product offerings, Kodiak's customers can purchase access to EcoView's data and features.
