Tracking methane emissions of the largest publicly-listed oil and gas producers in North America

Methane is by far the most potent greenhouse gas. Stopping methane leaks represents the most impactful action we can take this decade to avert catastrophic climate change. Deploying live satellite data analytics, MethaneScan® detects elevated methane emissions at the wellhead level and attributes them in aggregate to asset owners.

Beyond Carbon

Oil and gas operations are the largest source of methane emissions from the energy sector. FFI Solutions has partnered with GEO (Geofinancial Analytics) to provide institutional investors and their asset managers a new tool for assessing and comparing methane emissions of North American oil and gas companies.

MethaneScan delivers company-level Methane Leak Ratings that reveal elevated levels of risk including liability for erroneous disclosures and greenwashing. The ratings enable institutional investors, asset managers, fund managers, and consultants to better manage risk, inform portfolio and index construction, and align with climate targets.
