Shell Global Solutions LightTouch system (LTS) is an ethane gas sensor which can be used to detect methane gases from oil trapped in or under ice.
The system was tested with oil under ice in the Cold Region Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in US in 2004. The system detected ethane originating from the oil under ice with an ice thickness of 35 cm.
