STARtracker* is a Web-based application for tracking and reporting methane emission reductions. The application was donated by Devon Energy for dissemination to Natural Gas STAR partners. STARtracker was developed through a collaborative effort between Devon Energy Corporation, COMM Engineering, and Louisiana State University.
STARtracker can be hosted on individual companies' Web servers and allows users to input and access data from any location and catalog methane emission reductions across the company. The application is tailored to oil and natural gas production companies, but can be adapted for other industry sectors.
