2018 LDAR Training Courses
A 2-Day intense dive into best practices, continuous improvement and new-generation technology for all things Leak Detection and Repair / Fugitive Emissions. This workshop will feature discussion on LDAR program revalidation, as well as technology, tools and work practices to help elevate your LDAR program to excellence with cost-effective and efficient opportunities for improvement.
An in depth look at LDAR Basics from a fresh perspective.
Offered by FLIR – Infrared Training Center, this course covers the regulatory framework of Method 21 and 0000A and methods of compliance with the use of optical gas imaging. Topics of discussion will include the OGI certification process, how to use the Optical Gas Imaging camera technology and techniques, how optical gas image is a combination of art, science, technique, and interpretive skills, the basic safety practices for doing an OGI inspection, applications and innovative methods of inspection.
Optical gas imaging (OGI) continues to gain acceptance in the petroleum and petrochemical industries for both safety and environmental applications. The new NSPS OOOOa and BLM regulations for the oil and gas sector both allow for OGI as the primary Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) technology. These new regulations bring new requirements for OGI inspections and operators choosing to use OGI as a compliance tool. In addition, the field of OGI continues to advance with new methods, new sensor technology and new applications emerging. A QOGI method is now available to provide real-time measurements of leak rates.
This course will review the fundamental aspects of optical gas imaging and describe how they relate to the new OGI related regulations. The OGI related requirements for a OOOOa compliant monitoring plan will also be examined. A Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging method will be presented along with results from blind testing and side-by-side comparisons to other quantitative methods. Applications for QOGI in the oil and gas sector will be presented and discussed. The course will conclude with a survey of the latest developments in the field of Optical Gas Imaging with an emphasis on applications for the petroleum and petrochemical industries.
