LDAR-Sim Training

Our LDAR-Sim training is a fast way to give your team the skills and knowledge to use simulation to forecast the economics and emissions mitigation potential of different methane detection and quantification deployment strategies.

Highwood Emissions Management has developed a comprehensive training program to help unlock the potential of the powerful Leak Detection and Repair Simulator (LDAR-Sim). This 2-day course covers LDAR-Sim basics and gets into the details of setting up LDAR-Sim, understanding parameters, running simulations, evaluating results, and troubleshooting.

    • Contributing to LDAR-Sim and staying current
    • Q&A, Discussion, and special topics of interest to client (time permitting)


Why enroll in this course?

Participants will finish this course with:

  • A strong understanding of LDAR model function and the parameters and assumptions used in the models for establishing equivalency. This can help to provide the various stakeholders (applicants, industry, academics, NGOs, the public, and regulators) more confidence in the evaluation process of alternative LDAR and Alt-FEMP.
  • Hands-on experience using LDAR-Sim and running both simple and complex scenarios, including sensitivity analysis and multiple methods per program. Participants will leave with the ability to configure their own LDAR programs and forecast both emissions and economics of different LDAR configurations.
  • A deeper understanding of the strengths and limitations (both technical and philosophical) of LDAR modeling.
