Manage gas impact on the safety of people and assets

“Enabling GRTgaz to control the impacts of the routed gas on the safety of people and assets from its entry to the gas network until its final use is proving to be paramount”

  • Control the quality of the gases transported.
  • Control industrial risk while keeping a high level of economic performance and facilitating site acceptability.
Major challenges
  • Quality of the routed gases.
  • Detection of gas leaks, including odorization.
  • Understand gas phenomena and model their consequences.
  • Improve knowledge on the routed gases
  • Define gas routing specifications
  • Provide technical and regulatory follow-up
  • Improve knowledge of hazardous phenomena
  • Develop and boost the reliability of technologies for inspection from the outside
  • Develop risk assessment software
Key drivers
Looking ahead to 2030
  • Continue qualifying instruments (analysers, detectors) in order to identify new ones, while keeping an equivalent level of performance and finding the optimal technical and economic conditions.
  • Continue taking quality measurements of the gas to observe its variations.
  • Participate in standardization work (gas quality, odorization, etc.) in order to propose changes in current standards in the wake of technological improvements in analyzers and methods.
  • Understand the gas-related hazardous phenomena, in order to optimize and improve risk analysis methods and consequence modeling tools like Persee+.
