Essential Updates on Ground Gas Assessment - NZ

Rydges 59 Federal Street, Auckland NZ

PM Networking is sponsored by:

It is twenty years since the seminal paper on Reliability and Risk in Gas Protection Design was published (Steve Wilson and Geoff Card).  The approach it suggested still underpins the guidance in the latest British Standard on designing gas protection measures.  However, since that time, ground gas assessment has been continually evolving around the world.  Come and discuss the latest lessons learnt from experience of sites in Australia and the UK and how advances in gas risk assessment can help save your clients money and provide safe developments. 

The workshop will focus on new information and approaches that can help provide a pragmatic approach to ground gas risk assessment:

  • Looking at sources of ground gas afresh – is Alluvium really a risk?
  • Carbon dioxide – when is it really a risk to developments?
  • New screening criteria for gas risk
  • Screening approaches for off site gas migration
  • Impact of climate change on landfill gas migration risk
  • Getting the most value from continuous monitoring data – how it can reduce the need for mitigation
  • Critical performance criteria for gas and vapour membranes
  • Gas and vapour resistance of waterproof basement construction – a pragmatic approach.

This will all be underpinned by Australian case studies and data where ever possible

In the evening, at the networking session, you can pick Steve and Geoff’s brains. You might have a question to ask or an issue to discuss. Between them, Steve and Geoff have ample experience of working on projects in Australia and providing specialist support to Contaminated Site Auditors.
