Upstream and downstream activities in the industry require a variety of gas analysis capabilities that are well served by MIRICO’s laser-based technology. Our unique Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy technique is a versatile technology that can be deployed in an open-path configuration for the measurement of methane for health & safety monitoring. When combined with an array of reflectors, a single light source can cover a complex route in excess of 1 square kilometer, a considerably larger distance than comparable Tuneable Diode Laser products. The same technology can be used to monitor methane emissions from large area sources, including refineries and gas storage facilities. A change of wavelength, and the system can be adapted to measure a variety of other critical hazardous and flammable gases, such as hydrogen sulphide, resulting from so-called “sour gas”. In addition to the toxic nature of hydrogen sulphide, it also has an adverse effect on infrastructure such as distribution piping.
Our Laser Isotope Ratiometer is at the heart of a mud gas isotope logging solution, designed to optimise the identification and recovery of product in the field as a convenient and cost effective alternative to grab sampling and subsequent laboratory analysis.
