Dashboard: Global flaring 2012-2014


The interactive dashboard shows global flaring data for 2012-2014.

  • Top chart: 15 countries with the highest volumes of flared gas (2014) are selected to allow for comparison of various parameters related to flaring: total volume of gas flared and flaring intensity (2014), as well as their historical development. To see different indicators, please select from the drop-down menu on the right.
  • Bottom left chart: Flare size distribution is presented for the 15 top flaring countries (2014)
  • Bottom right chart: A map with all individual flare points – the size represents the volume of gas flared per flare point (2014), the colour indicates whether flaring has reduced from 2012 to 2014 (green) or grown (orange).

The graphs are based on US NOAA satellite data and the BP Statistical Review (see source description on the bottom of the dashboard).
