Flaring management guidance for the oil and gas industry: a summary

February 2022

Routine flaring can be a significant source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from upstream operations. Managing flaring to reduce emissions, and convert associated gas into a source of energy, can provide many benefits but also presents challenges.

The Flaring management guidance, developed by Ipieca, IOGP and GGFR in partnership, outlines new developments in flaring management and reduction, and examines industry experiences with eliminating flaring, new technologies, business models, operational improvements and regulatory policy. It also features case studies and examples of positive change.

This document provides a summary of the guidance, which can be downloaded in full here.
