Arolytics Optimized Leak Detection Program for Tanks and Other Key Equipment Proposal

Executive Summary

In collaboration with PTAC, Tourmaline, and CanERIC, storage tank emissions and flow monitoring data are being provided to inform model simulations to identify measurement technology and campaign structures (survey timing and frequency) that have the highest impact on methane reductions through earlier leak detection. Arolytics has developed a research-based modelling platform to predict leaks from equipment and optimize leak inspection schedules using a variety of detection technologies. With the influx of new technology for higher frequency monitoring (fixed sensors, satellites, fixed wing, drones, vehicles), Arolytics will use the model and Emissions Testing Centre (ETC) data to research both an optimal inspection procedure and measurement technologies to simulate reductions tank emissions.
