Kuva Systems: Making the invisible measurable


Permanent installation and demonstration of an infrared camera at 100 well sites across Alberta will provide continuous leak detection and quantification for tank emissions and facility monitoring. Kuva Systems will commercially demonstrate its ground-breaking IoT solution to detect, visualize, and quantify methane and other hydrocarbon emissions. ERA committed $1.6 million to the $3.2 million project through its $58 million Natural Gas Challenge.

Kuva Systems will demonstrate relocatable cameras that quantifying tank emissions over a period of days and weeks. It will also permanently install, cloud connected cameras with automatic leak detection and alarming. Permanent cameras at larger sites will enable operators to automatically detect malfunctions, repair them quickly, demonstrate regulatory compliance, and replace manual leak detection, reducing costs and accelerating emissions reductions. The project includes a comprehensive study of well sites in a variety of production regions and tank construction styles to further understand well site emission characteristics.

We spoke with Thomas McArthur, Director of Field Operations, and Monica Sippola, Director of Business Development from Kuva Systems to learn more.


We are investing in a diverse portfolio of technologies that will reduce GHG emissions, and we’re helping innovators address barriers to commercialization.
