The METEC team partners frequently with a variety of groups in the area of methane emissions. This includes engagement with academic partners, industry operators, regulatory groups, and solution developers. Regardless of what sector you are coming from, we welcome you to contact us with your testing or training needs, research interests, methane leak/detection questions, and general interest in the methane space.

Testing:

The METEC site offers a variety options for testing your methane detection and quantification solution. We are happy to work with you to come up with a custom testing plan that will answer the question(s) you want to answer, or identify a standard testing program that fits your needs. Contact us to set up a call to discuss.

Prior to working at the METEC field site, all groups are required to have in place a signed Site Access Agreement (SAA) and Confidentiality Disclosure Agreement (CDA).

In addition to these documents, if work will include the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS / Drones) prior approval for their use at the site must be obtained. Information on how to fulfill these needs can be found in the SAA.  CSU’s policy on the use of UAS can be found here, and a Drone approval form can be accessed here

Training:

METEC offers an OGI practical class that provides hands-on experience looking at methane emissions.  Contact us with your interest in when this will be offered next.

METEC IAB:

METEC brings together its diverse partner group in the METEC IAB. If you have an interest in sustained involvement in the area of methane emissions, contact us for more information on involvement with this group!


Interested in testing or training at METEC? 

Please complete the METEC Intake form and staff will be in touch to schedule.


New this Fall: Modeling Methane Emissions from Oil and Gas Course at CSU

METEC has developed a new course this fall for students and non-students interested in learning more about modeling methane emissions.  This is a Tuesday/Thursday class from 3-4:15 pm MT from August 19-December 8, 2024; tuition is $3,561.  For more information or to register: CSU Online (for online class) and CSU Guest Applications (for non-student, in-person class).  Additional class information can be found here.

Course Description:

A systems engineering approach to modeling and analysis of emissions from oil and gas facilities using a variety of approaches and tools, including dispersion models, Monte Carlo methods, and mechanistic models. Model predictions and uncertainties will be examined considering relevant emissions data.

Prerequisite:
CS 163 (CS1–No Prior Programming Experience) or CS 164 (CS1–Prior Programming Experience); ECE 303 (Introduction to Communications Principles) or STAT 301 (Introduction to Statistical Methods) or STAT 303 (Introduction to Communications Principles) or STAT 315 (Intro to Theory and Practice of Statistics)
