A program that is intended to complement a duty holder’s overall emissions reduction strategy by establishing a plan and supporting systems to systematically detect and manage fugitive emissions. This plan includes the systematic detection and repair of leaks, malfunctioning equipment, and surface casing vent flows. Detection of these leaks relies on regular surveys or screenings of sites for fugitive emissions. The term FEMP is characteristic of Western Canada. In the U.S. and elsewhere, the term ‘LDAR Program’ is often used.
