Turn your waste gas into power
ScanTech Offshore can help you generate power from Associated Petroleum Gas (APG) which will
reduce your carbon footprint and can be used for your own needs to reduce your operating costs, or to
monetarise waste gas streams opportunities when sold to a third party.
What is gas flaring?
Gas flaring is the burning of natural gas associated with oil extraction. The 160-year-old industry
practice of wastefully burning - as opposed to using or conserving - associated gas is a by-product
of oil production which takes place due to a range of issues, from market, technical and economic
constraints, to a lack of appropriate regulation and political will. Flaring is a waste of valuable natural
resources that should be conserved or used for productive purposes, such as generating power.
What are the environmental impacts of gas flaring?
Launched in 2015, the Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 (ZRF) initiative commits governments and oil
companies, to end routine flaring no later than 2030. The initiative is designed to facilitate cooperation
between all stakeholders so that solutions to ending routine gas flaring can be identified and
The flaring of gas contributes to climate change and impacts the environment through the emission
of CO2, black carbon and other pollutants. It wastes a valuable energy resource that could be used to
advance the sustainable development of producing countries.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, methane is over 80 times more powerful
than carbon dioxide as a warming gas on a 20-year timeframe.
How can we reduce the amount of gas being flared?
Oil producers face significant challenges capturing, storing, transporting, and distributing associated
gas, and the cost of ending all routine flaring could be as much as $100 billion. Oil operators can reinject
associated gas back into the ground or build the infrastructure needed to capture, store, and transport the associated gas to market. Meanwhile, governments can put in place effective regulations
and policies to incentivise and encourage gas flaring reduction.
