Gas flaring involves excess natural gas being burnt or flared off during an oil and gas operation. Gas flaring takes place across the oil and gas value chain but is predominant in the upstream sector. Natural gas is often flared off in the upstream sector during the production of crude oil. The stranded natural gas forms a small percentage of the produced hydrocarbons, rendering it uneconomical for harvesting and monetizing. But over time, the flared gases result in serious environmental degradation.
