Modification 000001 extends the application submission due date, adds the Project Narrative Cover Page to attachments, and adds the Budget Justification Workbook to attachments.

The overall objective of the planned FOA is to solicit and award multiple Research and Development (R&D) cooperative agreements to accelerate development of emissions mitigation technologies that enable an efficient, resilient and “leak tight” natural gas value chain.  Projects will establish integrated networks of surface-based sensor technologies that enable timely monitoring of methane emissions across large areas and determine how to best apply methane emissions monitoring, measurement, and mitigation efforts across oil and natural gas producing regions.  Projects will also deliver a well-defined plan for creating an “integrated methane monitoring platform” that will enable early detection and quantification of methane emissions along the natural gas supply chain.  Finally, the FOA will seek projects designed to improve the accuracy of methane emissions estimates from upstream crude oil, condensate and produced water storage tanks as a function of their character, configuration and operating conditions.
