This project will use autonomous emissions monitoring stations to quantify fugitive methane emissions from well construction and completion activities from unconventional shale petroleum exploration in the Beetaloo sub-basin.

Results from this study will compare actual measured results with estimated results to verify the adequacy of existing calculated emission estimates. This work provides a unique opportunity to gather data about industry operations while they are underway and to accurately determine the level of fugitive methane emissions associated with well construction and completions.
