OGI Terms

Term Definition
Regulation requiring OGI inspections but does not, specifically, require recording inspections on non-leaking Components.
Audit Status Results of a picture audit.
AWP (Alternative Work Practice)
A regulation allowing for an alternative to following traditional Method 21 frequency requirements and OGI inspection, but specifically requires recording inspections on leaking and non-leaking components.
Change Battery in OGI Camera If you have to change the battery on your OGI Camera during a survey, you should open the main menu, select OGI Battery Camera Change and approve the prompt.


Doing this will enable Chateau to properly identify the images and videos you have tagged, even though the battery change may disrupt the time settings on your OGI Camera.

Clock Sync If necessary, change the camera time to sync with the handheld—only to the same minute. The clocks do not have to be synced to the same second.
Deviation If at any time your ability to take a proper OGI image is inhibited, you should document a deviation.


You can do that by tapping on the 3-dot icon on the top-right corner of the tag screen.

Done When completing an inspection on an OGI Spot, always mark the OGI Spot as Done (never Fail).
Fail OGI Inspection Fail only applies when recording a leak on standard LDAR components (valve, connector, pump, etc.). DO NOT use it for OGI Spots.
Images A photo taken of a component in Chateau Mobile’s component edit screen will appear as a Target Image under Documents in the component details. A photo or photos of a leak will appear on the Inspection Details page. Any photos taken in Field Events will appear on the corresponding porches.
Import Get the images and videos from the camera and match them to the corresponding inspections.
Inspection Image This is the image taken after performing an OGI scan from an OGI Spot to document being in the right place and imaging the right equipment.

After completing an OGI inspection, you may be required to take an inspection image with your IR Camera. When taking the image with your IR Camera, Chateau Mobile will tag the image using the clocks of the handheld and the camera. After checking back in, you can upload the images from the camera and match them to the inspections.
Inspection Image and Video on the Leaking Component You may also take and tag an inspection image and/or video of the specific leaking component.
Inspection Video on the OGI Spot You may want to take and tag a video of the inspection of the OGI Spot.


You can take an inspection image and/or an inspection video. This is the best way to show the nature, location, and extent of an OGI Leak.

No “Leaks” on OGI Spots Leaks do not get assigned OGI Spots. Leaks are always assigned to the specific leaking component (valve, connector, hatch). After finding the Leak with the IR Camera, document the component and then assign the leak to it.
OGI Manage OGI Inspections.
OGI Settings A specific setting for managing OGI leaks and repair deadlines.
OGI Spot Component created to ID, track, and manage the Spots you should use as reference points for performing an IR Survey. An OGI Spot may represent one component, a group of components, or any other collection of equipment.
Only ONE Inspection Image per Inspection You can only tag one inspection image per inspection. If you think additional images are needed, you should either create another OGI Spot or generate another inspection.
Picture Audit The process of comparing the Target Image and Inspection Image for each OGI Spot to confirm the tech was in the right place and imaging the proper equipment during an OGI Survey.

At the end of the day, a Supervisor will be able to compare the Target Image of each OGI Spot to the inspection Image you took with the IR camera to confirm you were in the proper position to perform the OGI inspection.
Rejected Result of a Picture Audit.
Sensitivity Checks Daily Camera prep work for OGI Inspections.
Tagging Inspection Image and Video After tapping Done or Fail on an OGI inspection, a prompt will appear asking if you want to tag an image. If so, take the image on your IR camera, then tap OK on the prompt. You will then be asked if you want to tag a video. If so, start the video on the IR camera and stop when complete. Then tap OK on the prompt.
Target Image The image taken as reference for anyone who performing an OGI survey. This image is used to confirm the surveying tech is standing at the right spot and imaging in the right direction or right equipment. It is stored as a property of the OGI Spot Component.

This image is available to you in Chateau Mobile when you open the OGI Spot tag screen.
TBA (To Be Assessed) Indicates the OGI / Settings for an OGI leak specifies the leak repair deadlines are based on the date of the First Attempt Completion rather than the date the leak was identified.
Tour Path An image available for every LUnit with an OGI inspection scheduled. You can get to the tour path by tapping on the 3-dot icon on the top-right hand corner.
Transferring OGI Images to Chateau Chateau will use the timestamp of the image (or video) recorded by the camera and insert it into the database at the time you selected OK.


If you are not taking images or videos, select Cancel.
