Smart LDAR – Optical Gas Imaging

Quickly detect the biggest leaking sources and enable fast repair activities with OGI or Smart LDAR

OGI or Optical Gas Imaging is a screening technique using a very sensitive camera able to visualize gas emissions from a leaking source in an installation. This technique allows a quick scan of a large area or a scan of hard-to-reach sources such as non-accessibles, detecting the most important leaking components.

The OGI technique can be used as a standalone service where we provide ‘leak’ or ‘no-leak’ information or OGI can also be integrated into existing LDAR programs as so-called Smart LDAR programs.

In this case, we process the limited information expressed in ‘leak’ or ‘no-leak’ into mass leak information kg per year based on emission factors per source type and sensitivity of the camera. Screenings are  compliant to local regulations or customer-specific protocols.

Gas transmission operator Gasunie recently added screening with infrared cameras and High Flow Sampling to their existing contract. Why?

Benefits of Smart LDAR – Optical Gas Imaging

Detect leaks fast incl. non-accessibles

Scan a large amount of potential leaking sources - including non-accessible sources - in a limited time.

Focus on biggest emission sources

Detect the biggest leaking sources or bad actors and let maintenance focus on the biggest opportunities or reduction.

Comply with legislation

Realize a safe and healthy working environment for your employees and assets and demonstrate compliance to legislation.
