Canadian Natural has partnered with Alberta Based LuxMux, Boreal Laser, RWDI Air, the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), the University of Alberta, and others to conduct a comprehensive program to improve detection, monitoring and quantification of methane emissions from area sources such as mine faces and tailings ponds.

By developing a holistic system of sensors and models, Canadian Natural plans to achieve significantly more accurate quantification of diffuse methane emissions which will enable more targeted reduction strategies.
