Posted March 14, 2018 08:15:25The new gas leak detection system in the U.S. is a major step forward in protecting against catastrophic gas leaks and the cost of maintaining it is expected to be as much as $10,000 per leak.
According to the U, EPA and U.K. National Gas Council, the system has been tested on more than 1,000 gas leaks in the United States.
The system works by using a special gas sensor that detects a change in pressure in the gas tank or the pressure of a gas flow in the tank, and when the sensor detects a leak, a pump releases a low-pressure gas to the area around the leak.
The EPA and the National Gas Association estimate the cost for maintaining the system would be $1.3 billion over 20 years.
The National Gas Corporation has estimated that it could cost $1 billion to maintain the system for the same amount of time.
The system has not been tested in other countries.
EPA and NGA have said that the system should be installed nationwide by 2020.
