The pilot utilized sensor technology originally deployed by Nasa for the Mars Curiosity Rover to collect methane emissions data live-streamed from a drone. BP said it plans to deploy the technology to all of its North Sea assets, including ETAP and Glen Lyon, in 2020. Equinor Technology Ventures and OGCI Climate Investments have agreed to back the tech developer, which integrates its SeekIR miniature gas sensors onto drones to detect, localize, and quantify carbon emissions. ExxonMobil confirmed an exclusivity agreement with Var Energi for negotiations of a sale that could reach $4 billion, according to Reuters. If it goes through, the deal would make Var Energi the second-largest producer on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Equinor is working on a natural language processing tool that could combine data sources and help planners anticipate the issues that affect onsite operational safety.
