Emissions Reporting and Compliance Services

Frostbyte provides a broad suite of emissions reporting and compliance services, powered by our low-cost, high quality Emissions Inventory Management System.

Air Monitoring Directive

We provide compliance assessments, emissions quantification and reporting services, in accordance with the Air Monitoring Directive (2016)[1], for industrial facilities that are subject to air monitoring and reporting activities under their Alberta Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act (EPEA) approval or Code of Practice registration. We also provide data collection and reporting services for the upcoming Annual Emissions Inventory (Chapter 9, Section 7) requirement.

For operations in British Columbia and Saskatchewan, we provide air compliance services for facilities with reporting requirements under British Columbia’s Oil and Gas Activities Act (OGAA)[2] and Saskatchewan’s Oil and Gas Conservation Act[3]

Benzene Emissions from Glycol Dehydrators

We provide compliance and reporting services for operators subject to Alberta’s Directive 039 and Saskatchewan’s Guideline S-18. Our services include preparing and updating Dehydrator Engineering and Operations Sheets (DEOS) and preparation and reporting of the Annual Dehydrator Benzene Inventory List Form.

Flaring, Incineration, and Venting Logs and Reporting

We provide compliance services under Directive 060. This includes developing data integrations to support the monthly reporting of flare, incineration, and vented solution gas volumes through Petrinex in accordance with Directive 007[4]. We also work with clients to develop of tools and processes to accurately log flaring, incineration, and venting events.

Fugitive Emissions Management

Operators must develop and implement a program to detect and repair leaks that meets best practices[5]. We provide solutions to track fugitive emissions leak detection and repair information and work closely with third-party service providers to coordinate and schedule surveys. 

Frostbyte is closely monitoring methane regulatory developments federally and provincially. The Regulations Respecting Reduction in the Release of Methane and Certain Volatile Organic Compounds (Upstream Oil and Gas Sector)[6] are expected to be finalized in the first half of 2018. In Alberta, a draft methane reduction directive that will support the province’s goal to reduce methane emissions 45% by 2025[7] is expected in the coming months.

Greenhouse Gas Reporting

Greenhouse gas reporting and compliance requirements vary by jurisdiction. For Alberta-based facilities, we provide quantitation and reporting services that comply with the standards set out under the Carbon Competitive Incentive Regulation[1] and the Specified Gas Reporting Regulation[2]. For operations based in British Columbia, we adhere to the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act[3]. Oil and gas facilities in Saskatchewan are subject to the Federal Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Program[4]

National Pollutants Release Inventory

Our emissions quantification services makes reporting to the National Pollutants Release Inventory seamless. We track changes to reporting requirements and thresholds and adhere to the latest guidance documents, supplementary information, tools and methodologies.

Air Dispersion Modelling

Frostbyte has expertise in air dispersion modelling required for permitting and licencing applications subject to Alberta Ambient Air Quality Objectives (AAAQO), British Columbia Ambient Air Quality Objectives, Saskatchewan Ambient Air Quality Standards, Ontario's Ambient Air Quality Criteria, Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards (CAAQS), and National Ambient Air Quality Standards in the States.

Our air dispersion modelling assessments can be used to determine ambient ground-level concentrations of criteria air contaminants such as nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter. We also model concentrations of secondary air pollutants like ground-level ozone and substances prevalent in upstream oil and gas operations such as volatile organic compounds, hydrogen sulphide and total reduced sulfur.  

Increasingly, air dispersion modelling  is becoming a regulatory requirement for permitting under the Alberta Energy Regulator’s Directive 56 for facility license applications and under Alberta’s Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act (EPEA) for facility approvals. Frostbyte’s cost effective approach to air dispersion modelling can help you to evaluate environmental design, obtain facility approvals, and ensure compliance with ambient air quality requirements.
