Atmos International has created a specialist leak detection regulation program compliance for the North American market.

Led by Carin Meyer, regulation compliance specialist, the service will provide support for customers wishing to achieve full API 1130 compliance in leak detection systems.

In a statement, Atmos International said the program offers gap analysis, compliance statements, necessary procedures, testing programs, training and rescue programs to support pending audits. 

Adrian Kane, Vice-President of Business Development for Atmos, said, “For over 25 years Atmos International’s primary focus has been to detect pipeline leaks reliably. As a result, we have gained significant experience and knowledge on industry regulations.”

“Our in-house Regulation Compliance Service supports customers in understanding and achieving compliance.”

To demonstrate compliance, operators must prepare a statement defining how their leak detection system is compliant with specific clauses covering the following areas:

  • Instrumentation
  • SCADA
  • Maintenance
  • Control room procedures
  • Alarm management
  • Testing
  • Leak detection system software

Carin Meyer, Regulation Compliance Program Specialist for Atmos International, added, “We know that no two pipelines or operating systems are the same, that’s why we offer a bespoke approach to our compliance program.”

“My colleagues and I have significant experience gained within the field as well as working for operators, we understand the challenges they face. Our aim is to help remove the headaches our customers may face while looking to achieve compliance.”
