DNV GL Introduces Offshore Leak Detection Systems Guidance

DNV GL has launched globally applicable guidance for leak detection systems for offshore fields.

The Recommended Practice (DNVGL-RP-F302) is based on the findings of a DNV GL led joint industry project (JIP) completed in 2015 with 19 companies, including Eni, Lundin, Petrobras and FMC technologies, and industry regulators as observers.

It covers all the lifecycle phases of a field development for planning, design, integration and operation of leak detection technology in offshore hydrocarbon productions. A thorough process has been defined where the key stages are functional requirements, design requirements, technology selection, detailed design, function testing and operation, DNV GL wrote.

“Until now, there has been no guidance for operators covering selection and operation of offshore leak detection systems for an entire field, including both subsea and surface. Having an optimized leak detection system provides key decision support in limiting the impact of an oil spill, reducing response time and reducing costs from recovery operations,” said Jock Brown, Head of Section Environmental Technology Advisory, DNV GL – Oil & Gas.

“This RP is based on industry experience and provides a robust approach that will support the industry in reducing its footprint and minimizing environmental risks from their operations,” added Brown.
