Find & fix: job creation in the emerging leak detection and repair industry

Research released by Datu Research in April 2017 offers an inside look at the methane leak detection and repair (LDAR) industry – a growing field of service providers that utilize technology to identify and repair leaking equipment at industrial oil and gas facilities.

The report found that the LDAR industry offers well-paying employment opportunities across the country that cannot be offshored, saves money by minimizing waste and keeping otherwise lost product in the pipe, and reduces emissions of a highly potent greenhouse gas along with other co-pollutants, thereby contributing to cleaner air for communities.
