ZEROING METHANE EMISSIONS DATATHON
January 24 - March 7
The SPE Calgary Section has teamed up with their friends at the SPE Gulf Coast Section, along with ‘Untapped Energy,’ Canadian Heavy Oil Association (CHOA), Energy Transition Alberta, and the SPE Gaia Sustainability Program to organize a data event like no other! Driven by the desire to use real data to solve a real problem, to elevate data literacy and to make new professional connections, all while having fun!
Quantifying greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is a crucial part of Environmental, Social and Governance corporate strategy. Our goal is to provide datathon participants with a high quality hands on learning experience in this area by working on an industry-relevant problem with real data. One emerging topic is the analysis of methane emissions, such as comparing “bottom-up” estimates using activity and emissions factors, with “top-down” approaches using satellite data.
