Research of natural gas leak prevention

Six leaks were detected between the 9,125 critical points tested during 23 days of research conducted by management of Natural gas from the Public Services Regulatory Agency of Alagoas (Arsal) in order to prevent leakage of natural gas.

All non-compliances evaluated were low risk and remedied by the concessionaire within the period determined by the regulatory agency for 1 hour. The leaks were detected in approximately 6% of consumer units inspected, as follows: a post automotive, four industries and a pressure regulating station (ERP).

The annual survey was established by the regulatory body with the purpose to trace leaks throughout the distribution system extension of piped natural gas in Alagoas. Its implementation helps to prevent incidents, minimize risks and ensure the quality and continuity of supply of the product.
