Gas flaring - What has changed?
Not only a waste of a valuable national resource
but an acknowledged negative impact on the environment
Gas Flared \ Vented in bcm & as % of Gross Gas Production
Cubic Meters of Gas Flared \ Vented per Ton of Oil Produced
m3 per ton of oil
Obstacles to gas flaring reduction and elimination vary
But real obstacle
When associated gas flaring/recovery is not addressed at right level
Viability of infrastructure investment
However, even if on paper investment shown to yield high return
Does not necessarily mean that infrastructure will be built
Who is supposed to invest?
NOC, IOCs or both
Gas flaring issue must be acknowledged at highest level
of policy decision making process
(“empowerment” & champions)
Need to design or adjust national gas strategy
