Compliance Management for Fugitive Emissions & LDAR – Canadian Regulations

In anticipation of Canada’s Regulations Respecting Reduction in the Release of Volatile Organic Compounds (Petroleum Sector) being finalized, Trinity is providing this 1-day course for corporate and facility environmental personnel responsible for ensuring compliance with applicable air quality regulations with respect to fugitive emissions and leak detection and repair (LDAR). Once in effect, Canada’s Regulations Respecting Reduction in the Release of Volatile Organic Compounds (Petroleum Sector) will require the implementation of comprehensive LDAR programs at Canadian petroleum refineries, upgraders and certain petrochemical facilities. As such, this course includes a review of fugitive emissions sources and emissions quantification methods, as well as discussions specific to control of fugitive emissions focused on managing an LDAR program to comply with the regulatory requirements. Additionally, this course will cover developing and implementing an LDAR program as well as other facets related to LDAR compliance.
