Methane emissions from well drilling to completion in the Beetaloo
Quantifying fugitive methane emissions from well construction and completion activities in the Northern Territory
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.
