Gas flaring – Carbon Limits


Gas flaring

Flaring of associated gas is a major resource waste and causes large emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. Although the total volume of flaring is highly uncertain, the World Bank estimated that 140 bcm of gas was flared globally in 2011.

Carbon Limits has been involved in a number of gas flaring reduction projects in almost twenty different countries including Russia, Nigeria, US, Ecuador, Egypt, Kazakhstan  and of course Norway. The team has developed a deep understanding of the specific challenges and technologies for gas utilisation.

Our team provides expert advice on:

  • Country/regional assessment of the gas flaring situation
  • Identification of potential gas utilisation projects
  • Comparison of gas utilisation options for a site or a cluster
  • Techno-economic assessment of gas utilization options
  • Sensitivity analysis
  • Barriers and risk evaluation
  • Identification and development of flare reduction investment opportunities
  • Implementation of procedures for accurate and auditable emissions reduction monitoring

Our clients include the Global Gas Flare Reduction Partnership (GGFR), the World Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Qatar Petroleum, the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO), and Clean Air Task Force (CATF).
