Objectives Operators able to carry out a barholing survey competently and safely by 271vY03


									Barholing Techniques
 Natural gas escapes can be very dangerous; it is therefore
important that the source of the escape can be identified as quickly
as possible. With modern sealed surfaces it can be difficult to
locate the source; barholing is a technique that allows readings to
be taken below the surface making it easier to locate the source of
the leak. This course is designed to train candidates in how to
carry out barholing correctly and safely.
