Tracerco - introduction of phase II of EU emissions trading scheme


The introduction of Phase II of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) means that there will be an increased requirement for Operators to demonstrate that they are measuring their carbon dioxide emissions accurately.

As an Operator, there is a requirement that you will implement a programme for the monitoring and reporting of greenhouse emissions from your facilities. It is therefore critical that you can rely on your installed flare gas flow meter for confident regulatory compliance.

Using the TRACERCO Diagnostics™ Flow Study we can measure the flow rate with an uncertainty value of less than 1% for the velocity of the gas, and an uncertainty value of less than 4% for the total flow. A quick and reliable technique, the calibration of flare gas meters can be carried out online and in real time.

We believe that this technique will provide you with significant advantages when discussing your statutory requirements with the regulators.

Should you have any questions or require clarification regarding the technique, please contact us.

Tracerco is attending the NEL Oil & Gas Focus Group Meeting on 12 September 2007 in Aberdeen to discuss the Calibration of flow meters in-situ using tracer techniques.
