Air quality and the environment

Leading the Charge for Environmental Change and Compliance

Leading the Charge for Environmental Change and Compliance

RAM (Remote Air Monitoring) is leading the charge for environmental change and compliance.

Floating methane, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide particulates that are being released into the air we breathe are quickly becoming a problematic issue that is often overlooked. This is quickly becoming a primary focus on the impact of air quality of the environment, which is why it is important to realize and understand as to why forming a real time RAM Air Quality Study (RAQS) is necessary. Many companies are not aware as to how much CO2 and methane emissions are actively being deposited into the atmosphere from present and past drilling operations and production facilities.

We actively monitor, identify, and record air emissions data to accurately identify the particulate presence of CO2, Methane, and H2S emissions that are escaping into the atmosphere on current and past drilling locations. This allows our clients to not only take action to help curtail these harmful emissions, but also take a proactive role in making their locations safer by knowing the precise amounts of H2S that are actively present in the air prior to arriving at producing locations. We utilize state of the art air monitoring equipment sensors that are tailored to your specific needs to allow our clients to detect harmful environmental particulate emissions in real time and allow them to take action to reduce their overall carbon footprint.

We perform engaging environmental studies to allow you to obtain EPA compliant certifications to offset overall carbon emissions that lead to Federal Tax breaks. You will be able to rest easy, knowing that you are actively doing your part to make our planet a better place for generations to come. Let’s explore the benefits of what RAM can do for you!

Grafana hosted by AWS

Our team has performed extensive R&D on all our air monitoring sensors that can read ppm’s of harmful VOC’s that are well below set EPA standards. RAM can configure readings that allow you to view data every second, or one reading per minute. If you want sporadic readings throughout the day, we can do that as well. We fully cater to your needs. After the air sensors are in place, you will be set up with a personalized login to actively check your air quality levels at your discretion at any time of the day, 24/7.

RAM works congruently with MiQ, who is the leading governing body on Methane and CO2 emissions. MiQ’s mission focuses on driving climate action: creating incentives for the drastic reduction of methane emissions across the oil and gas sector, by delivering a thriving market for independently certified gas.

Once a complete 30-day AQS has been performed on your location by RAM, we will compile a comprehensive analysis of the data results and draw up an emissions certification. MiQ will review and vet the data set and will then verify and approve the compliance certificate. Each compliance certificate is valid for one year from the date of issuance and will be added to the MiQ digital registry of validated Audit Reports.

RAM Air Quality Study (RAQS)

Initial Air Pattern Study

As we all know, wind patterns vastly vary from day to day, even hour to hour. For this reason, RAM technicians will perform a in depth air pattern study to determine ideal placement for the sensors that are to be utilized during the RAQS. Proper placement of sensors is crucial to getting the most accurate data results during the primary RAQS study. This initial study allows us to determine the historic wind patterns that are typical for your specific location

Primary RAQS

After determining the wind patterns, RAM will deploy 3-5 sensors onto your location that are equipped with the desired sensors best fit to obtain optimal readings. Once the sensors are in place and powered on, you will immediately begin to receive data! RAM will supply you with a personal login to view the progress of the RAQS and allow you to view your data readings in real time. Sensors will be in place for a minimum of 30 days, which we feel is the perfect amount of time to analyze particulate patterns in and around the air at your determined location, as well as generate accurate data readings with varying ambient air temperatures and humidity to quantify data. The quantification of all the varying data retrieved from your location is critical for issuance of a compliance certificate.


Upon completion of the 30-day study, you will have access to the raw data found throughout the RAQS via your login. RAM will then take that raw data and compile it into a comprehensive report for your records. This report will give insight into particulate spikes and valleys of data readings that occurred throughout the test period. After explaining this data in detail, RAM will then potentially be able to accurately determine the most propagated areas where emissions are most likely to originate from each location. We would then in turn draw up a compliance report for certification and submit it to MiQ. Upon approval from MiQ, RAM will issue a compliance certificate that is valid for 1 full year from the date of issuance.


So, what will an RAQS performed by RAM do for you? The answer is simple. By allowing RAM to perform a RAQS for you, this will allow you to have peace of mind. Peace of mind knowing that you are actively engaged to improve the air quality for everyone involved in and around your drilling sites is one step closer to improving the quality of life for all. Second, it will allow you to be compliant with governing agencies such as the EPA and BLM by proving to them that you are ahead of the curve and are taking the proper steps to ensure air quality standards are in place for your operations before regulations are set forth and mandatory. And lastly, it provides an added layer of safety for all that are involved in active and past drilling operations to ensure that the environment they work in is safe and secure.

RAM is dedicated to improving air quality and reducing carbon emissions on a global scale. It is extremely important to realize that now is the time for us all to reduce our overall footprint on the world we live in. It’s time to return the favor and give back to our planet.
