LeakROV – a method for monitoring and measuring methane leaks offshore

Bjarte Langeland, Stinger Technology AS

Most operating companies use a combination of technical and organizational measures to detect unwanted discharges of oil and gas, among others visual observation. Experience has shown that the current methods and equipment available are not as effective as desired.

Stinger Technology AS, with assistance from NGI (Norwegian Geotechnical Institute), is developing a Micro ROV based tool to investigate gas leakages offshore (referred to as leakROV). Project work has been divided into different phases; 1) Screening available technologies and selecting most promising for our purpose, 2) Development and assembly of the leakROV, 3) Shallow water test (verification), 4) Offshore test (pilot) and 5) Lab test (verification).


The goal for LeakROV pilot project was to evaluate tools and techniques to detect and quantify underwater gas seepages. Several sensors (methane sniffers, acoustic camera and microROV system) have been tested in the field. Suggestions for permanent monitoring are made after a quantitative analysis of data quality and operational feasibilities. Developing regulations and the ability of LeakROV to assist in complying with these will be discussed.
