Methane Testing Specialists

Partner is one of the Preferred Providers of Methane Testing for the City of Los Angeles and other Southern California cities. Our methane surveys are inexpensive, fast, and easy to read. We provide integrated methane consulting as we can provide methane mitigation design in addition to methane testing.

High methane gas is present in the soil in much of Southern California. Areas more prone to high methane gas concentration include:

  • Former Oil Fields
  • Landfills
  • Areas with high natural petroleum deposits.

  • Buildings above high methane gas areas are at risk of accumulating methane and therefore becoming an explosive risk.

    These risks can be mitigated without proper vapor barrier design; however, before spending money on a vapor barrier, most developers and home owners are well served to perform a Methane Survey first.
