Bubbleology Research International (BRI) presented SISTER2TM to the public via a press release earlier this week. The press release follows the release of a long-awaited video in collaboration with Business Insider of a SISTER2 survey in Bakersfield, CA. Watch the video at this link or below. SISTER2, an air quality laboratory in a 1-ton box, is now available for advanced gas leak detection and assessment. The BRI team hopes to reach new markets with the press release and Business Insider video. SISTER2 capabilities can assist operations for natural gas companies, the oil and gas industry, government, and research collaborations to protect our communities and the environment.
BRI successfully tested this detection capability in Bakersfield, CA on emissions from active and abandoned oil wells during the Business Insider shoot. It’s challenging to detect emissions from abandoned oil wells since most of these emissions don’t have any smell or color. SISTER2’s extreme sensitivity allowed the detection of these weak gas emissions on the field survey. Many of these oil wells can leak gases into communities and the atmosphere unnoticed for many years – which is bad for human health and the environment.
In addition to all SISTER2’s surveys for BRI research, SISTER2 also joined the Aerospace Corporation’s airborne remote sensing efforts to characterize oil field methane plumes. This study will soon be released in Society for Petroleum Engineers: Production & Operations. The best way to keep up with SISTER2 operations is by visiting the BRI Twitter where we tweet out the latest surveys, updates to the vehicle, and SISTER2 news!
