Conversion of High-Bleed Pneumatic Controllers in Oil & Natural Gas Systems

Conversion of High-Bleed Pneumatic Controllers in Oil & Natural Gas Systems

American Carbon Registry has approved a methodology for Conversion of High-Bleed Pneumatic Controllers in Oil & Natural Gas Systems v1.1. The methodology details requirements for oil & gas companies to reduce fugitive emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, by retrofitting existing high-bleed pneumatic controllers with low-bleed options. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, high-bleed pneumatic controllers are among the largest sources of vented methane by equipment type in the domestic oil & natural gas industry.
