We are a New Orleans Natural Gas and Petroleum technology start-up company, headquartered in Covington, LA .

Our goal is to provide a technology that will help pipeline operators, refineries, power plants, paper mills, off shore platforms, and additional industries comply with the proposed methane emissions regulations set forth by the Obama administration and the Environmental Protection Agency in January 2015.

Our proprietary technology, the Environmental Pneumatic Abatement System (EPAS), provides one solution for reducing pneumatic controller methane emissions and decreasing “lost and unaccounted for” gas.

The EPAS, is the first non-intrusive device adaptable to any pre-existing pneumatic controller to reduce methane bleed from pipelines and, as a result, allow operators to recapture lost profits.

The team leading LTI has 30 years of pneumatic device experience combined with 22 years of sales and marketing experience.
