Go bold on reducing methane

THE CHALLENGE IS URGENT. THE MISSION IS CRITICAL.
THE TIME IS NOW.

The fastest way to slow climate change NOW is by cutting methane, a powerful climate pollutant. Data from MethaneSAT will help do just that.

COMPREHENSIVE, FULLY TRANSPARENT DATA, COMING SOON...

MethaneSAT will be the most advanced methane-tracking satellite in space, measuring methane emissions virtually anywhere on earth.

It will offer higher sensitivity measurement than any satellite, enabling high-precision tracking of emissions that others can’t see. It will turn its data around in days, and offer it free to everyone.

ABOUT METHANE

30%

Rapidly reducing methane from the oil and gas sector and other sources could slow the rate of global warming by as much as 30%.

#1

MethaneSAT is the world’s first satellite launched by an independent NGO. Our only agenda is to save the planet.

2M

The Permian Basin, the world’s largest oil and gas field in the world, alone releases enough methane each year to meet the annual gas needs of nearly 2 million homes.

10M

The total US volume of methane emissions equaled enough gas to fuel 10 million homes.
