The Oil & Gas, Energy, Industrial, and Government sectors are all under increasing pressure and public scrutiny to reduce emissions that impact ambient air quality.
The majority of leaks or irregular releases from pressurized containment are difficult to detect. These fugitive emissions are most often small releases that provide no immediate impact to human health and the environment. However, rapidly expanding activity across a number of industries has lead to gasses like methane reaching a measurable increase on the global scale.
In response, governments have placed an increased pressure and awareness on fugitive emissions detection - and specifically the identification, quantification, and reduction of methane emissions.
The Oil and Gas industry in particular has seen the development or amendment of both federal and provincial and provincial regulations. In Particular, changes to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 and the development of the Alberta Energy Regulator’s (AER) Directive 60 have put industry in a difficult position - since reliable, accurate, and cost effective methods for identifying and qualifying these releases have not been traditionally available,
That is, until now.
Our team of technical experts work with clients to define, develop, and deliver tailored aerial services that directly meet the challenges of their business and industry.

The Oil and Gas industry in particular has seen the development or amendment of both federal and provincial and provincial regulations that govern emissions standards for methane release. As a result of these regulatory developments, Liquid Natural Gas plants, gas storage tanks, and gas pipelines are all under increased scrutiny for fugitive emissions.
Our fugitive emissions platform is able to quickly scan a site, locate methane leaks, and tag them with GPS coordinates for further investigation. When paired with our Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) Camera we have the additional ability to quantify leaks - Making AltoMaxx the only contractor required to conduct and prepare required surveys and screenings.
With the AER putting Directive 60 guidelines in place last year, we were one of the first to respond with an aerial solution. As the first company in the world to use the U10 TDLAS Methane Sensor on a drone platform, we are able to quickly scan a site, locate methane leaks, and tag them with GPS coordinates for further investigation.
Additionally, our Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) Camera provides the capability to quantify leaks as required by the AER or other regulatory body - Making AltoMaxx the only contractor required to conduct and prepare your annial or tri-annual Surveys and Screenings.
In addition to the impacts on climate change, methane emissions in the mineral exploration industry pose a significant risk to human health and safety.
Whether it is ventilation from operational underground mines, emissions from abandoned or closed mines, or fugitive emissions from post mining activities; Our fugitive emissions detection solution can help proponents and governments identify and understand site specific risks for methane in mineral exploration.
