Current Funded Research Projects

Cheniere co-sponsorship of EPSRC PhD studentship equipment budget

Funding source: Cheniere Energy Inc
Start: 01-01-2022  /  End: 31-12-2024
Amount: £90,000

Previous Funded Research Projects

Designing an aerial methane measurement strategy to meet OGMP2.0 level 5

Funding source: BP Exploration Operating Company Limited
Start: 21-02-2022  /  End: 20-11-2022

Methane emissions are still poorly understood and we need more measurements to determine the most effective emissions mitigation pathways. We are conducting research to develop an industry-wide strategy to reconcile increased top-down (e.g. facility level) measurements with bottom-up (source level) measurements.

LNG Transport: Measuring And Minimising Methane Emissions

Funding source: The Collaboratory to Advance Methane Science (CAMS); and Enagas SA
Start: 02-11-2020  /  End: 31-12-2021

This is a first-of-a-kind project to measure total methane emissions from an LNG (liquefied natural gas) carrier ship. The research will help determine effective measurement methodologies for shipping methane emissions, and provide the first data point in understanding how much to ships contribute to natural gas supply chain emissions.
