Project Canary and Sensirion Connected Solutions (SCS) partnered together to provide upstream and midstream operators with access to various methane monitoring sensors, including third party devices, through Project Canary's climate analytics platform, a press release announced on Sept. 15.

The platform will allow the operators to understand and account for their total site emissions, giving them the opportunity to institute reduction plans accordingly. Additionally, the partnership will expand customer choice for sensor array fidelity, now offering customer-choice managed hardware schema, according to Project Canary.

“This partnership signals our now-open-sensor platform so customers can choose from various managed hardware solutions," Project Canary co-founder and CEO Chris Romer said in the release. "Project Canary integrates the best sensors into our platform to provide the highest quality data to meet the market demands for accurate, independent emission profiles.”

The partnership will expand the reach of SCS' Nubo Sphere, an emissions monitoring product based on metal-oxide technology, that allows for an exchangeable cartridge system to ensure easy maintenance and future technological upgrades.

Through an integration with Project Canary's cloud-based analytics software, all Nubo Sphere data goes into the analytics and insights portal, including "emissions quantification tools, regulatory compliance solutions and operational risk assessment programs," the release stated.

Driven by climate and transparency-focused leaders in the Project Canary and SCS teams, the partnership aims to give customers a broader range of options to benefit the environment and "future-proof" strategies to improve methane emissions detection and quantification.

“We are seeing a race among companies to provide reliable emissions data and services," SCS general manager Dr. Felix Hoehne added. "Industry leaders in the energy sector want to be ahead of the regulatory curve, and that’s where Project Canary and Sensirion Connected Solutions come in. Together, we enable the energy industry to roll out a scalable, high-quality solution to all gas well sites.”
