Reducing methane emissions: Flaring

MGP Best Practice Guide: Flaring

Flares burn flammable gases that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere. Flaring in upstream oil and gas operations may be needed for safety reasons, because of a lack of capacity to use produced gases, or as a part of routine emission controls.

IEA Pathways to a 75% cut report

Tackling methane emissions from fossil fuel operations represents one of the best near-term opportunities for limiting the worse effects of climate change because of its short-lived nature in the atmosphere and the large scope for cost-effective abatement, particularly in the oil and gas sector.

IEA Methane Tracker

Methane emissions are the second largest cause of global warming. While methane tends to receive less attention than carbon dioxide (CO2), reducing methane emissions will be critical for avoiding the worst effects of climate change.
