Gas Flaring, Composition, Emission, Measuring, Environmental Impacts and Recovery Methods: An Overview

Azad Khalid, Murad Khamayseh, Rana KIDAK


Gas Flaring is a combustion process in many industrial operations, such as oil and gas mining, refineries, chemical plants, coal production, and landfills, to burn related, unused, or unnecessary gases and liquids produced during the natural or unplanned overpressure process. approximately 145 billion cubic meters (bcm) of flared gas worldwide annually. Gas flaring is a major cause of emissions of greenhouse gases. It also creates noise, heat and offers large uninhabitable regions. A main concern is a decline or recovery from gas flaring. There is also an immediate need to assess the flared gas by its known composition, distribution and volume, in addition to implementing the appropriate flare gas recovery or disposal method. This paper offers a description of the structure of the flaring gas and its related environmental impacts. By observing the various methods of flare gas recovery systems, it also explains the flaring estimation techniques and the decrease of flare gas.
