The report presents standard protocols for estimating mass emissions from equipment leaks. Different approaches for estimating equipment leak emissions are described and several topics relevant to estimating equipment leak emissions (such as speciating emissions) are addressed. Information on how to perform a screening survey at a process unit is presented. Information on how a process unit can collect equipment leak rate data by enclosing individual equipment pieces and measuring mass emissions is provided. Also, information if provided, that can be used to estimate the control efficiency of equipment leak control techniques. The document will help facilities generate accurate plant-specific equipment leak emission estimates.
