We are recognized as laboratory for Optical Gas Imaging to detect fugitive emissions

We are pleased to announce that we have obtained our certificate to use the Optical Gas Imaging technique for leak detection at our Flemish customers´ sites! We received the official certification from the Environmental Department of the Flemish Government last week. As recognized laboratory, we can continue to help our customers in Flanders with both Leak Detection And Repair (LDAR) and Optical Gas Imaging. We are now certified to perform LDAR conform EN15446:2008 (L11.1) and Optical Gas Imaging conform NTA8399:2015 (L11.3).

Why this certification for OGI?

Oil and gas companies in Flanders have to comply with the environmental legislation ‘VLAREM’. In order for a service provider to perform measurements and to check whether the techniques and calculation methods used suit the regulatory requirements, a certification by the Flemish Government is required.

This certification confirms that the techniques, equipment, methodologies and our experts´ know-how regarding Optical Gas Imaging are best-in-class and that we apply high quality standards. Our operational team of course already performed OGI screenings for our customers as described in the previous legislation with the permission of VITO – the Flemish Institute for Technological Research.

Compliance with the highest quality and safety standards

We are very pleased with this official certificate and to receive confirmation from auditors and third parties that our working methodology is in compliance with the highest quality and safety standards. Practical tests, a dedicated exam, and multiple audits were performed in order to obtain this certificate. We look forward to serving our Flemish customers with best-in-class LDAR and Optical Gas Imaging screenings and to help them reduce their fugitive emissions.

With our quality management systems ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 17025 and our safety certification SCC** in place, I believe we offer our clients highly performant measurements and accurate, reliable emission figures that has been certified by third parties.
