Reduction of Fugitive/Vented Emissions for Oil and Gas Industry

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Register by May 5, 2017

As Canadian petroleum and natural gas infrastructure grows, emissions regulations from multiple regulatory authorities have been put into effect. Watch dog groups monitor and inspect facilities, plants, and pipelines to ensure compliance in new and existing facilities, storage tank farms, and pipeline stations. Government regulations are becoming strict, and changes during the life of some facilities have rendered parts or all of their system components noncompliant.

In today's world, there are a multitude of regulatory authorities dictating codes on emissions: CSA, API, ISO, Environment and climate change Canada, CAPP, AWHEM, EPA, ISA, and FCA.

In this session, we are going to discuss

  • A brief history of emissions regulations
  • The future of emissions and where the industry is headed
  • Current practices and upcoming regulations
  • A review of a portion of CSA Z620.1
