Remote Sensing Leak Detection Technologies Video (video will launch in a pop-up window)
In an effort to promote new technologies for remote sensing leak detection, this video was developed to highlight various leak detection technologies. These technologies detect methane leaks that are invisible to the human eye and are powerful tools in identifying and reducing methane emissions. Technologies highlighted in the video include hand-held passive infrared cameras; infrared laser detectors; and aerial sensing-leak mapping systems.*
Various Natural Gas STAR Videos
These videos were taken at various Natural Gas STAR Partner facilities using Infrared (IR) cameras to show leaking and fugitive emissions from various pieces of equipment. The videos highlight the importance of using an IR camera for leak detection because gas leaks are often invisible to the naked eye. The videos show “before and after” footage of a leak using a regular camera, followed by the same footage using an IR camera.
