Profoundly simple well site methane elimination

Kathairos is leading North American oil and gas producers on the path to eliminate pneumatic venting on more than 400,000 remote well sites. Reliable, economical methane mitigation is here, and the time to act is now.

Enormous challenge. powerful solution.

Methane venting is the most pressing emissions issue facing the oil and gas industry. Producers require a technology that can effectively solve the problem at the speed and scale necessary to meet regulatory deadlines.

"An innovative yet simple solution to completely eliminate methane emissions on pneumatic controllers and significantly reduce maintenance of that process."

Technology

Transformational fuel-switching technology

The Kathairos system stores liquid nitrogen in a standalone cryogenic tank and vaporizes it into clean, dry, inert nitrogen gas to actuate well site pneumatics at exactly the volume and pressure required.

DATA & OFFSETS

Empirical decarbonization data,
not estimates

Kathairos' closed system uses the nitrogen volume consumed to accurately calculate abated emissions – an empirical data set that informs methane intensity, tax exposure, carbon credits, ESG reports, and certifiable sustainability progress.
