  • Unconventional Oil and Gas Production Not Currently Affecting Drinking Water Quality

    A new U.S. Geological Survey study shows that unconventional oil and gas production in some areas of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas is not currently a significant source of methane or benzene to drinking water wells. These production areas include the Eagle Ford, Fayetteville, and Haynesville shale formations, which are some of the largest sources ...

  • Ocean Absorption of Carbon Dioxide More than Makes Up for Methane Emissions from Seafloor Methane Seeps

    The ocean waters near the surface of the Arctic Ocean absorbed 2,000 times more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than the amount of methane that escaped into the atmosphere from the same waters, according to a study by the USGS Gas Hydrates Project and collaborators in Germany and Norway. The study was conducted near Norway’s Svalbard Islands, above several  ...

  • Ultraportable CH4/CO2/H2O for natural gas leak detection

    LGR offers a comprehensive, easy-to-use and economical system for natural gas leak detection, quantification and mapping (to Google Earth). Competitive systems consist of costly and delicate equipment and require long-term leases, and expensive software licenses and maintenance contracts. In contrast, LGR’s Natural Gas Leak Detection Systems (NGLD), composed of LGR’s renowned ...

  • Groundwater papers link methane in groundwater to natural sources

    A pair of papers in Groundwater®, NGWA's bimonthly technical publication, finds a high level of methane in water wells from two Texas counties is most likely from shallow natural gas deposits, not natural gas leaks caused by hydraulic fracturing operations in the underlying Barnett Shale.  The research builds on previous studies on well water quality in the Barnett Shale ...

  • USGS Finds Elevated Levels of Arsenic, Radon, Methane in Some Private Wells in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania

    Tests of 75 private drinking water wells in Lycoming County, in north-central Pennsylvania, found water from most of the sampled wells contained concentrations of radon that exceeded a proposed, nonbinding health standard for drinking water. Smaller percentages of the wells contained concentrations of arsenic or methane that exceed existing drinking water standards. The US Geological ...

  • NH3 / CH4 detection for biogas injection into the natural gas grid

    Simultaneous detection of two gases increases efficiency while decreasing costs. A single, compact device can accomplish this. Axetris Laser Gas Detectors are capable of measuring ammonia and methane for biogas injection into the natural gas grid. Biogas is a modern energy source independent of the limited supply of fossil fuels. Its production can be adapted to current demand and is, unlike ...

  • Oil’s methane emissions higher than feared

    Global methane emissions from oil production between 1980 and 2012 were far higher than previously thought – in some cases, as much as double the amount previously estimated, according to a new scientific study The reason for the discrepancy is simple. The author of the study − which also includes emissions of another gas, ethane − says it is the first to take into account ...

  • Landfill Methane Emission Monitoring

    Methane (CH4) plays a critical role in the radiation balance and chemistry of the atmosphere. The major anthropogenic sources are anaerobic production from landfills, ruminant animals and their waste, release from the mining and use of fossil fuel, burning of biomass, etc.. On average, over the global scale, landfill methane emissions contribute between 10-19% of the anthropogenic methane burden ...

  • The Guangdong Medical University in China develops a method for non-invasive prostate cancer screening using Renishaw`s inVia confocal Raman microscope

    New research at the Guangdong Medical University suggests a laser-based approach could be the latest breakthrough in prostate cancer detection. The proposed non-invasive blood test uses a combination of two techniques: surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) and a new mathematical analysis technique called support vector machine (SVM). Together, these techniques produce an accuracy up to 98.1 ...
