Oil/gas production tank hatch monitoring – Eliminate methane emissions
Hatch monitoring will typically be paired with production tank level monitoring at the wellsite. The SM3 is designed to handle both. The patented hatch sensor could be marketed as a single product for use with other telemetry solutions. Installation is simple and can be performed by a roustabout or pumper. Hatch monitoring will eliminate the greatest source of methane emissions at wellsites.
The design may be further developed to provide the operator notice of how much time the tank is venting even when the hatch is latched. This application would further reduce methane emissions.
