DNV—GL — OFFSHORE LEAK DETECTION
|D O W N L O A D|
The officially released DNV GL recommended practice for the offshore leak detection. The experience gained from the offshore industry incidents have resulted in the increased concerns and closer attention to the operations of the offshore oil and gas fields with the particular focus on the detection of leaking hydrocarbons. It should be clearly understood that the earlier the leak is detected, the easier it will be to prevent an occurrence from its escalating into a serious accident.
Therefore the operators shall implement a good and effective leak detection system; such system shall be reliable and shall allow detection of the leaks with due level of certainty. In addition, the system shall of course meet the requirements of all regulatory documents. The content of the present recommended practice has been specifically developed to be used for the planning and design of such systems, their integration and operation offshore.
However, it shall be noted and remembered at all times that application of the leak detection system shall never be considered a reason for reduction in safety level on any other system installed on the installation in terms of their design and manufacture etc.
