There is pressure to process natural gas and oil quickly, safely, and cost effectively while complying with increased international regulations. Regulators, like in the United States EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) require a much more comprehensive approach to safety and regulatory practices. Newly enforced regulations by governments around the world to reduce emission levels quickly require companies in oil and gas and other sectors to adopt rigorous gas leak monitoring methods. Simply put, far more inspections, more frequent.
OGI (Optical Gas Imaging) cameras have been named by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as the most effective tool for complying with new regulations. EPA have found out, through research and comparison with traditional technologies, that Optical Gas Imaging is the best available method of gas leak detection today.
Optical gas imaging (OGI) is a modern thermal imaging technology that utilizes high-sensitivity infrared (IR) cameras to detect very small fugitive emissions of industrial gases. Due to the many advantages of this technology over legacy methods like Method 21 “sniffer” technology, OGI has quickly become de facto method for effective gas leak detection across industries.
Leveraging OGI cameras like Opgal’s EyeCGas 2.0 into your LDAR routine enables you to utilizes todays most advanced OGI technology. Allowing you to inspect, detect, and repair quickly and efficiently.
