Oklahoma City, OK: Flogistix’s methane sniffing technology has been approved by the State of
New Mexico as part of the Advanced Leak and Repair Monitoring (ALARM) technology
program. On November 22, the state’s Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department
(EMNRD) approved Flogistix’s sniffer 4Dv2 technology for use by oil and gas operators to
detect methane leaks.
The sniffer system technology was approved as part of the EMNRD’s Oil Conservation
Division’s newly applied rules that were released on May 25, 2021. The rules were created to
reduce methane emissions in New Mexico and include the ALARM technology program which
allows operators the opportunity to earn credits to offset a portion of their annual total volume of
lost gas. Operators are required to reduce fugitive emissions with the goal of reaching a gas
capture rate of 98% by 2026.
The sniffer detection method used by Flogistix features a system that detects methane, H2S,
VOC, and hydrocarbons while carried by a DJI Matrice 300 drone. Flogistix is the only company
to utilize this aerial solution in the process of leak detection out of the other currently approved
technologies within the program. The sniffer captures geo-referenced and time-stamped gas
and particle concentrations and can detect nine gas and particle concentrations at once. The
technology operates automatically using battery power and cellular connectivity to collect and
“Flogistix is excited that New Mexico has approved our technology for the ALARM program,”
said Flogistix CEO Mims Talton. “Our technology enables operators to efficiently and effectively
detect leaks, meet emission standards, and minimize their impact on the environment.”
