LDAR - Leak Detection And Repair

Identify leaking equipment, reduce VOC emissions, and report credible emission figures

LDAR or more specifically Leak Detection and Quantification (LDAR) is a program that identifies unintended or fugitive emissions from equipment in an oil and gas, chemical, or petrochemical installation. It drives maintenance activities to reduce emissions to the atmosphere effectively.

Every potential leaking source is examined with a sniffing device (PID or FID) and the quantification of the emissions follows the EPA Method 21 protocol or a similar country-specific or customer-specific regulation.

Our experts have vast experience in performing LDAR surveys globally. Rely on accurate and high-quality measurements and advisory so you can minimize product loss and save costs.
