If you haven’t heard, TRICORD’s own Buzz Harris and David Ranum are hosting a 2-day LDAR Training Event December 13th and 14th in Austin, Texas and you’re invited! In this blog post, you’ll find out what you can expect to learn and how to register for the event. And if there’s something you’re interested in that you don’t see on the agenda, please let us know!
If you’re looking to learn the ins and outs of LDAR regulations, look no further. Buzz and David will cover how federal LDAR regulations are organized, how to search for specific regulations, and how to retrieve important background information. You’ll also learn how to access the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations and how to employ pdf editing tools to bookmark, highlight, underline, and comment on the important elements within a regulation. Finally, you’ll find out how to use the Applicability Determination Index to query EPA regulatory interpretations.
Method 21, Optical Gas Imaging, and Component Identification
Master the process from the masters themselves. You’ll become familiar with basic and enhanced Method 21 procedures, find out about the Alternative Work Plan (and why refineries aren’t using it) and why natural gas production facilities are turning more and more to infrared leak detection. Thinking of a re-tagging project? You’ll find out how to do it efficiently and the best tags to use.
In this section, you’ll discover the best ways to care for your monitoring equipment and how to keep it working properly. You’ll leave confident in your inspection skills and capable of verifying that each of your analyzers is properly certified, calibrated, operated, and maintained.
Database Audits and Common Pitfalls
End the work day learning how to prepare for EPA Section 114 requests, how to minimize your risk of database compliance issues, and the ten common database pitfalls to avoid.
Program Management and Quality Assurance (Plant Level to Corporate)
We’ll start the second day bright and early going over the elements of management and quality assurance that are essential to the successful administration of an LDAR program.
Regulatory Grey Areas and Interpretations
It’s not all black and white. In this section, you’ll learn about some of the most important regulatory grey areas that can affect your facility and ways to resolve issues you may face.
Be sure that your database is calculating LDAR emissions correctly and protect yourself from liability. We’ll take you behind the scenes to understand how Method 21 ppm screening concentrations translate into kilogram/hour mass emissions.
Applicability Determination and P&IDs
Lastly, you’ll find out all about the various resources available for you in making LDAR applicability decisions. Learn how to document those decisions on P&IDS and get some tips on “reading” P&IDs.
In addition to all the great learning you’ll do, the training is a great way to network and socialize with other LDAR professionals. A happy hour at the end of Day 1 will round out the day and make you fast friends with the affable Dave and Buzz. A lite breakfast and lunch buffets will also be provided each day.
