Gas Plant Leak Detection and Repair Program

Nov 22, 2016 9:10 AM ET


Antea Group was contracted to develop a Leak Detection and Repair Program for a natural gas plant in Wyoming to comply with New Source Performance Standard EPA 40 CFR 60 Subpart a requirements. One portion of this project involved uniquely identifying and physically tagging potentially leaking components (valves, flanges, etc.) that are subject to the leak detection rules. The challenge to accurately track and maintain the required database of identified leaks, required records of follow-up repairs, and all associated inspection details is a common task in many industries. The gas plant is required to perform monthly leak inspections using an IR camera, and to track and monitor each leak and repair among nearly 4,000 identified components, requiring an efficient identification and data management system.
