Google to share oil and gas methane leaks spotted from space

Google and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) have announced a partnership to use a new satellite, MethaneSAT, to detect sources of climate-warming emissions from oil and gas operations. The satellite, set to launch next month, will monitor methane emissions globally and identify major sources of the greenhouse gas. Google Cloud will provide computing capabilities to process the satellite’s data. The collaboration aims to create a map of oil and gas infrastructure using artificial intelligence, with MethaneSAT’s emissions data overlaid on the map. The information will be accessible through Google Earth Engine, a geospatial analysis platform, later this year. The initiative comes as governments and energy companies strive to reduce methane emissions.
