Tony McMurtrey, Director, Fiber Network and Technology, EPIC Midstream (MIS)

Leveraging New Technology To Detect Gas Leaks At Processing Facilities With Compressors, Pumps & Valves – Evaluating Cost Competitive Options

Continuous gas, flame and particle monitoring technology is necessary to detect leakages that could occur within the facility as a result of heat, pressure and vibration. There are a whole range of different continuous monitoring technologies on the market. Which cost competitive technologies are operators seeing success with? 

  • Determining the potential emission and air release rate of the facility 
        - For example, pipe components, compressors and power generation turbines
  • Technology selection for continuous monitoring to match the characterises of the facility 
  • Assess cost benefit analysis and trade-offs between different continuous monitoring technologies

Wendy Assali, Leak Detection Engineer, Chevron

16.00 Audience & Panel Discussion 

Technologies & Techniques For Gathering Pipeline & Central Gathering Station Leak Detection  

Crude, gas and produced water gathering networks and stations share unique challenges for leak detection. The product itself is highly variable depending on the specific well, production field and region and the dynamic nature of injections and deliveries on multiple well pads. Emissions may also be present in the gathering stations that collect oil and gas from multiple wells to a central point from tanks and their vents or components such as valves and pumps. This audience and panel discussion invites participants to share their experiences and results with emerging leak detection technologies and techniques for crude, gas and produced water.

16:45 Chair’s Closing Remarks & Close Of Day 2
