Methane is the second strongest greenhouse gas contributing to climate change after carbon dioxide. Reducing methane emissions contributes to both slowing climate change and improving air quality. In order to reduce methane emissions from the energy sector, the European Commission has proposed the obligation to improve leak detection and disposal in fossil fuel infrastructure, as well as any other infrastructure that produces, transports or uses fossil fuels. Compressors and compressor stations are such a component of the energy system. The paper presents the testing procedures of the valves in the gas transmission pipes for the evaluation of external leaks and the proposed corrective actions to minimize them.
