LEAK DETECTION AND REPAIR SERVICES (LDAR)
YOUR VAPOR RECOVERY SOLUTIONS COMPANY™
40 CFR Part 60 Subpart OOOOa of the New Source Performance Standards establishes emissions standards and compliance schedules for the limitation of emissions from methane, a pollutant greenhouse gas (GHG). It also establishes emissions standards and compliance schedules for the control of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions from affected facilities in the crude oil and natural gas source category.
You are subject to QUAD Oa if you are the owner or operator of one or more onshore affected facilities which commenced construction, modification, or reconstruction after September 18, 2015.
Of the affected facilities, well sites and compressor stations are required to survey all of their fugitive emission components, per §60.5397a of Subpart OOOOa. The surveys are required in order to identify leaking components, document the leaks, and repair the emission leaks from fugitive components. The goal is for each affected facility to reduce methane emissions and VOC emissions by monitoring their fugitive emissions components.
OTA Compression offers services that cover fugitive emissions component surveying, repairing, and documenting. Our Leak Detection and Repair program will keep your facility in timely compliance with these new regulations. OTA’s LDAR stands out among others because it utilizes the only EPA certified optical gas imaging (OGI) camera, e.g. FLIR GF3xx series, to survey your affected facility’s fugitive emissions components in order to visualize and pinpoint leaks without the need to shut down operations at the site. Additionally, OTA will have a repair technician present during the survey. This enables us to pinpoint, repair, and re-survey the repaired fugitive emissions components on the same day reducing your cost and relieving the wait time for submitting reports. The documenting of any leaks and repairs will be captured within the Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) report that we can generate on your behalf. OTA’s LDAR report will contain vital information that will allow you to encounter a painless and uncomplicated annual reporting event to the EPA.
Per §60.5397a, owners or operators of affected sources must develop a monitoring plan that serves as the blueprints for the surveyor, and includes but not limited to: calibration protocols, observation paths, survey techniques, survey equipment and designs, and leak source descriptions. OTA is well versed in monitoring plans and can assist you in the development. In fact, we have a monitoring plan ready for distribution.
OTA Compression’s LDAR program can help you successfully navigate through the new regulations requiring fugitive component monitoring, repairing, and reporting requirements set forth by 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart OOOOa §60.5397a.
