Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR)
DEVELOP YOUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY INTITIATVE WITH OUR LDAR PROGRAM
Volatile Organic Compound and Volatile Hazardous Air Pollutant (VOC-HAP) emissions are a growing concern in petroleum refineries and chemical manufacturing plants, oil and gas upstream and downstream facilities, and floating production, storage, and offloading sites. Our industry expertise ensures you can safely control the risk of such emissions, and meet regulatory standards that protect against the deterioration of air quality and reduce human exposure. We can help you initiate fugitive emission control programs as part of your corporate social responsibility initiatives.
Bureau Veritas’ Lead Detection and Repair (LDAR) programs are designed by our experts and surveyors who are available to help you implement a fit-for- emissions reduction approach that is in compliance with local regulations, international guidelines, and global best practices.
REDUCE YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT AND IMPROVE OPERATIONS WITH OUR EMISSIONS REDUCTION PROGRAMS
By implementing LDAR programs developed by Bureau Veritas, VOC-HAP emissions are monitored and controlled according to the US EPA Method 21 and the European Method EN 15446 standards (from the European Committee for Standardisation - CEN).
We provide you with an optimised service package for detection and reduction of VOC-HAP emissions, using the latest, reliable digital applications. Our methods consist of five stages, which guarantee accurate results so you can improve your services and deliverables:
- Process review
- Identification, measurement, and detection of emission sources using analysis and imaging
- Create an on-site emissions management database, including equipment tracking and and corrective technologies
- Repair and maintenance assistance
- Calculation of VOC emissions before and after repair
With our LDAR services, you can gain a complete technical overview of your operations, from photos to videos to diagrams, in order to target localised areas for emissions reduction. Our programs provide online analyses of your total gains by equipment, networks, and zones.
You also receive permanent access to our software in order to optimise and support your corporate social responsibility initiative.
The reduction of emissions improves safety, human health, and protects the environment. Our LDAR program helps you reduce environmental impact and safely conduct oil and gas operations by reducing explosive atmospheres and emissions. We provide you with an effective risk management system, increasing the productivity of your installations, and ensure you have complete full control of your emissions output.
