In this week’s Highwood Bulletin, I am pleased to announce the long-awaited and very exciting release of the third edition of Highwood’s free Voluntary Initiatives report. This year’s report is better than ever so please check it out! We also catch you up on all the important conferences and courses you should know about this fall.

Announcing the 2023 Voluntary Initiatives Report!

One of the things we’re known for at Highwood is our annual report, Voluntary Emissions Reduction Initiatives for the Oil and Gas Industry. This year’s report is now out, and it’s better than ever, with exhaustive data on each initiative, trends over the years, and valuable insights from our expert contributors. Whether you’re a fan of this report or learning about it for the first time, hold on to your methane sensors because you’re in for a treat. Check out the 2023 report here.

Course: Methane Detection and Quantification Technology

The world of methane monitoring is complex – and it’s not about to get easier! If you’re struggling to understand the available technologies, how to deploy them, how to manage data, and how they fit into regulations and voluntary initiatives, you’re not alone. That’s why we put together this course with Evaluate Energy – taught by myself and Highwood’s Director RD, Dr. Jeff Rutherford. Register today for the December 2023 offering.

Conference: EPA International Emissions Inventory Conference

The biennial US EPA called the International Emissions Inventory Conference (IEIC) is returning and will be held this year in Seattle from September 26-29. Emissions inventories are a popular topic these days, so join Highwood by registering for the free conference here.

Conference: CH4 Connections

Catch the Highwood team at one of our favourite conferences this fall – CH4 Connections, in Fort Collins, Colorado, October 4-5. Don’t miss pre-conference training in both MEET and Veritas. Also, catch Highwood presentations on Veritas-OGMP 2.0 alignment and on the diversity of available methane technologies. Register here.

Conference: EEMDL Annual Event

We are excited to participate in the Energy Emissions Modeling and Data Lab (EEMDL) 2023 Annual Event in Austin, Texas on October 11 and 12. Make sure to register here and we look forward to seeing you in Texas to talk about emissions modeling, LCA, LNG, and more!

Version 3 of LDAR-Sim Released

The Leak Detection and Repair Simulator (LDAR-Sim) is an open-source model for testing out new methane detection and quantification solutions in a virtual environment. As part of our education mandate, Highwood has been working hard to release V3 of LDAR-Sim, which came out last week. Read all about the new version and how to use it here.
