A Global Standard for Flaring / Venting

ggfr logo The majority of GGFR partners have now agreed to endorse a voluntary  Standard to eliminate venting and reduce flaring significantly within five to ten years by finding commercial uses for the associated gas through increased collaboration between countries.

The Standard also implies that countries and companies that have endorsed it will avoid flaring in new oil developments, if economically feasible.

The voluntary Standard, which was developed by operators and governments, also encourages an integrated approach to the utilization of associated gas and provides a framework for governments, companies, and other key stakeholders to consult with one another, take complementary actions, and publish figures about flaring and venting volumes in a unique web-based data tool developed for GGFR partners.
