Kodiak unveils new emissions monitoring system

By Keefe Borden01 December 2021

Kodiak Gas Services has partnered with Legend Energy Advisors to launch EcoView, a proprietary data collection and high-fidelity transmission system that monitors emissions and streamlines efficiency for the company’s compression assets.

Leveraging Legend’s innovative software and hardware, EcoView will provide Kodiak with unparalleled, comprehensive views of all operational data captured through the 150+ sensors on its equipment. 

“The development of EcoView offers our technicians, management, and clients an unprecedented ability to monitor operational data in real time and enhance our already industry-leading mechanical availability guarantee,” said Mickey McKee, president and CEO of Kodiak. “With ESG initiatives front and center for the industry, this technology eliminates the guess work for our customers and drastically increases the accuracy of the data related to greenhouse gas levels reported by them.”

Through 2022, Kodiak has committed a significant investment to EcoView as part of Kodiak’s pledge to sustainably provide critical midstream infrastructure and related compression equipment and services for the U.S. energy sector.

Kodiak units with EcoView will transmit real-time operations data every five seconds. Approximately one billion data points per compression asset per year is collected on site, interpreted within Legend’s software and associated hardware, and transmitted back to cloud-based servers every five minutes.

“We are excited about the continued partnership with Kodiak and the future impact of EcoView,” said Dan Crosby, CEO of Legend Energy Advisors. “Together, we can provide Kodiak’s customers with access to instantaneous operational visibility, unmatched anywhere else in the compression industry which will drive both environmental and financial sustainability.”

EcoView will enable Kodiak to make truly predictive maintenance a reality through future partnerships with machine learning companies, driving down costs, improving operational efficiencies, and minimizing the equipment’s environmental impact by reducing unplanned downtime incidents.

Craig Collins, executive vice president and general counsel of Kodiak, added “Partnering with Legend to create EcoView allows Kodiak to continue to fulfill the pledges contained in our inaugural Sustainability Report and lead compression providers into a future where ESG goals and financial success are synonymous. We look forward to evolving the capabilities of EcoView as customer and industry needs adapt.”

In 2022, Kodiak will enhance the capabilities of EcoView by adding the ability to track leaks and other sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Also, in 2022 through incremental, enhanced product offerings, Kodiak’s customers can purchase access to EcoView’s data and features.
