Advanced Mobile Leak Detection (AMLD)
New Mexico Gas Company uses a special tool in our ongoing efforts to keep neighborhoods safe. It’s a vehicle outfitted with innovative laser-based technology that can detect and analyze methane gas emissions. It also uses special software and wind speed calculations to pinpoint the precise location of emission sources.
Based in Albuquerque, this vehicle can survey areas during precautionary sweeps or head to locations where the smell of natural gas has been reported or a leak is suspected. As it drives along, sophisticated sensors check for leaks or damage.
If a leak is confirmed, our crews will respond quickly to make repairs. This high-tech vehicle keeps your neighborhood safe and clean by reducing natural gas emissions.
