Gas Flaring : Gas Flaring www.osseismic.com My Observation : My Observation Gas flaring is a waste of a very useful natural resource. The only reason it is done is because big name oil companies are too lazy and don’t want to waste the money to move it to a different place. The harmful effects of air pollution and acid rain that is affecting the people of Nigeria and their crops tromendously out ways the benefit of saving money to transport it to a different facility that can actually use it. What exactly is a gas flare? : What exactly is a gas flare? an elevated vertical stack or chimney found on oil wells or oil rigs, and in refineries, chemical plants and landfills used for burning off unwanted gas or flammable gas and liquids released by pressure relief valves during unplanned over-pressuring of plant equipment(“Gas Flare”). www.prometheus-energy.com Statistics : Statistics 150 billion cubic meters (or 5. 3 trillion cubic feet) of natural gas are being flared and vented annually 400 million tons of CO2 in annual emissions. 42.6 Percent of the annual natural gas production is wasted through gas flaring In order to address the gas flaring issue, GGFR facilitates and supports national efforts for increasing the use of associated gas, thus improving energy efficiency, increasing access to energy, and contributing to climate change mitigation (GGFR). scripts.mit.edu What do the experts say? : What do the experts say? Arden Berg, Alberta Energy & Utilities Board: It’s a win-win for every body, you have the potential to increase utilization of a premium fuel and natural gas is a premium fuel. It has an opportunity to provide some poverty alleviation benefits and it reduces a greenhouse gas. www.sigir.mil Gas Flaring in Nigeria : Gas Flaring in Nigeria A July 2003 report on Nigeria by the U.S. Energy Information Administration stated that flaring "has not only meant that a potential energy source — and source of revenue — has gone up in smoke, but it is also a major contributor to air pollution and acid rain." http://edition.cnn.com/video/#/video/international/2009/01/03/purefoy.nigeria.gas.flare.cnn www.spacedaily.com Slide 7: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4uZDvA5WY4 www.foei.org The Number One Gas Flaring Country : The Number One Gas Flaring Country Using satellite imagery, the U.S. found that Russia is burning 3 times more gas than had been previously estimated. This makes Russia the worlds biggest gas flaring contributor (John Donnelly). hellshalfacres.com Do It! : Do It! Gas flaring is a horrible way to get rid of natural gas that can be useful to others. The big oil companies are running the show here, this needs to change. If everyone cared and did something about this threat, than we would all be a lot safer and our natural resources would be more efficient.
