Measuring Methane

Gathering and Processing         Transmission and Storage

The Energy Institute at Colorado State University is leading two national studies to measure the amount of methane loss across the nation’s natural gas supply chain – from the time it is extracted until it reaches end users.

CSU researchers are quantifying emissions from gathering and processing plants and transmission and storage facilities.

The project is sponsored by the Environmental Defense Fund and several natural gas companies.
