Sources of direct emissions of methane and NMVOC were identified by a survey of the facilities on the Norwegian Shelf. For 15 of the installations the survey was conducted through full-day meetings with the operators key personell.
The systems on the installations were reviewed and potential sources of emissions were identified and recorded. For the remaining devices the information was collected by means of a targeted questionnaire. A total of 48 potential emission sources were detected and methods for quantifying emissions from individual sources were reviewed. The survey confirmed that the previously used quantification method is not sufficient.
