Timeframe: Q3'2020 - Q4,2021


The West Texas Methane Showdown ("The Showdown") is a technology testing initiative that will support the selection of the sensors for the Project Astra mesh network pilot. The Showdown will test the accuracy and efficacy of commercially available, high frequency sensors in real-world operating conditions.


The best performing sensor(s) from the Showdown will be incorporated into the Project Astra system design and trialed in the mesh network pilot in the Permian Basin.
