We are excited to announce that the University of Calgary Centre for Smart Emissions Sensing Technologies (SENST) has released the Leak Detection and Repair Simulator (LDAR-Sim) after several years of development.

LDAR-Sim is an open-source, agent-based numerical framework specifically designed to demonstrate equivalence among LDAR programs (i.e., FEMPs). LDAR-Sim can also be used to evaluate policy, inform technology development, and generally improve understanding of how and when to deploy different technologies to optimize the cost-effectiveness of methane mitigation efforts. LDAR-Sim uses a geospatial approach to simulating LDAR, accounting for true facility characteristics such as their locations and local environmental conditions anywhere in the world.

LDAR-Sim is a dynamically evolving testing framework. The Github code can be forked and we enthusiastically welcome contributions. We also welcome any comments and criticisms.
