BIG LEAKS MATTER MORE
Kairos is built around the principle of minimizing the total volume of methane being leaked, rather than the total number of leaks, as quickly as possible. Methane emissions are highly skewed, with a few leaks emitting large amounts of methane, which means fixing those leaks has a greater overall impact.
Since 2016, Kairos has surveyed over 10,000 square miles, identified more than six billion cubic feet of methane and is currently conducting an unprecedented survey of every production facility and pipeline across the entire Permian Basin.
Efficiency in Time, Resources
Pay less money for higher amounts of identified emissions and prioritize maintenance budgets by sending crew where they’re needed most. By using aerial surveys, Kairos can identify leaks much more quickly and at a lower cost than having crews inspect sites by foot. The resulting Kairos data is immediately actionable by operators’ existing repair crews and processes.
Accessible and Possible Now
Kairos is currently providing data to clients and can quickly onboard new ones. Operators do not need to buy equipment or train employees because Kairos handles every aspect of the data collection process. The final report identifies emissions locations for operators’ repair crews to act on.
Kairos’ ability to combine spectrometer data with simultaneous optical imagery and geo-location data makes it possible to scan production and midstream equipment for methane leaks more frequently and efficiently than ever before, raising the bar on what it means to follow best practices in methane LDAR.
