  • Launch of 'Flaring management guidance for the oil and gas industry'
Calendar2 February 2022, 1:30pm - 3:00pm


The critical challenge of transforming the world's energy systems to meet the needs of a growing global population, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions on the pathway to a net-zero future, requires unprecedented collaboration across all sectors and countries.

By reducing or eliminating routine flaring, the oil and gas sector can significantly reduce its climate impact, and by making use of the otherwise flared gas as an additional energy source, it can support sustainable growth. Building a shared understanding of the wide range of potential benefits among all stakeholders - including owners, operators, financiers, regulators and governments - is key to encouraging them to work together to overcome the barriers to reducing flaring, and to using or conserving the gas.

To introduce the Flaring management guidance for the oil and gas industry, a joint publication from Ipieca, IOGP and the World Bank Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership (GGFR), this webinar will cover:

  • Introduction by GGFR, IOGP and Ipieca
  • Key elements of the guidance presented by Carl Wirdak of ERM
    • Fundamentals of gas flaring
    • Establishing company flaring and venting policy and procedures
    • Management of routine and non-routine flares
    • Enhanced measurement and monitoring
    • Flaring management framework for governments and regulatory bodies
  • Case studies
    • Wintershall Dea - integrating associated gas capture during field development (TBC)
    • Qatargas - reducing flaring from LNG boil-off gas
  • Global flaring regulations, lessons learned and country case studies presented by Martin Oswald of the GGFR

We hope the Flaring management guidance will assist governments, the oil and gas sector and other stakeholders in playing their part in delivering the commitments of the Paris Agreement and in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Please note: the Flaring management guidance will be launched and available for download on 2 February, prior to the webinar.

If you are unable to attend the webinar, but would like to receive the recording, register as usual and the link will be sent directly to your inbox.
