Enalysis APM software extends beyond optimization and predictive maintenance to help customers cost-effectively manage regulatory compliance

Detechtion Technologies, the market leading asset optimization provider in Upstream Oil and Gas, is announcing the launch of an Enalysis Directive 60 Module that will be made available with the next release of Enalysis, Version 5.1. The new release offers the capability to manage section 8.6.2 of Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) Directive 060 Regulations ( which outline handling of vent gas for compressor seals.

To comply with section 8.6.2 of Directive 60, Oil & Gas operators in Alberta can store vent test results and track seal replacements for reciprocating and centrifugal compressors, and report those results to AER’s Onestop software. Downtime records captured in Enalysis will be used in conjunction with vent gas rates to accurately report vented volumes and extend testing intervals. By leveraging the downtime hours tracked in Enalysis, the vent tests required to be done at 9000 hour intervals could be extended by months depending on the assets’ runtime. Enalysis customers will be able to take advantage of these new features to comply with these regulations, which took effect July 7, 2020.

“We recognize the significant impact the new regulations have on Canadian Oil and Gas Producers in terms of cost and complexity,” said Eric Neason, SVP of Products & Services of Detechtion. “With the launch of the Enalysis Directive 60 Module, we are excited to provide our customers the ability to determine the most cost-effective compliance strategy and the tools to manage ongoing compliance.”
