A challenging environment

The extraction of highly flammable liquids and gases from the earth is a precise and potentially dangerous operation. It involves precise technology combined with experience and expertise developed over decades.

Burning excess gas by flare is a critical part of the safety regime. Flare stacks are often used for burning off flammable gas released by pressure relief valves during unplanned over-pressuring of plant equipment. This often takes place during start-ups and shutdowns in production when the volume of gas being extracted can be uncertain. In this respect flare stacks provide a critical means by which to ensure safety – the alternative to allowing the gas to escape would be a significant build-up of pressure and the risk of explosion.

The accurate measurement of the gas flared is important for a number of reasons. First, in many regions of the world the flaring of gas is subject to taxation and accurate measurement ensures that the correct taxation is being paid. The second reason is to provide intelligence to the industry on the volume of gas flared. Natural gas is a limited and valuable resource – ideally no gas would ever be lost. Accurate measurement of gas flaring means the industry can plan better ways to reduce the loss and create best practice in the future.
