SeekOps Secures Funding from OGCI

SeekOps Inc. has secured funding from two investors as part of its Series A-1 fundraising – OGCI Climate Investments fund (OGCI CI) and Equinor Technology Ventures (ETV).

SeekOps develops advanced sensor technology to detect, localize, and quantify natural gas emissions through integrated drone-based systems. The company manufactures miniature gas sensors, called SeekIR, and applies them to drones to provide unique capabilities for emissions detection, localization, and quantification in the field.

The drone’s capabilities were validated during the 2018 Mobile Monitoring Challenge, led by Stanford University and the Environmental Defense Fund, as it was dubbed the top-performing technology for emissions localization and quantification on Unmanned Aerial Systems.

SeekOps currently offers drone services to the energy sector for the upstream and downstream oil and gas markets. Additional growth plans for 2020 include the introduction of handheld and vehicle-mount sensors to increase emissions measurement and reporting standards across the industry for environment, health and safety.
