Fugitive Emission Testing

Our Services

Raven Infrared Imaging is able to attend your facility/plant, well-site or landfill to check for VOC and hydro carbon leaks quickly,accurately and safely operating the Flir GF 320 optical gas imaging camera. Using this camera we have the capability to check thousands  of components daily in an effort to identify and visualize fugitive  gas emissions in real time without putting people in harms way by using older sniffer technology. We will soon add the QL 320 OGI Quantitative tool which will be able to measure the loss for emission reporting and also to determine any lost revenue associated with the leak.

Upcoming regulatory changes

The Government of Canada recently reaffirmed its commitment to reduce methane emissions 40-45 %  from present in  the oil and gas sector by 2025. To help achieve this, the Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) Directive 60 was developed and enacted. On Jan 1/2020 all covered upstream oil and gas facilities will be required to test equipment a minimum of three times a year for fugitive emissions, changes in rules surrounding venting and pneumatic devices will come into effect on Jan 1/2023, both these measures will mean that O&G operators will need to be proactive in their goal of compliance with the new regulations.

Our qualifications

Our level one thermographer has been certified as an Optical Gas Imaging technician by completing OGI training at ITC Canada.
