Mitigating Natural Gas Flaring
UH Energy invites you to virtually attend the third event in the 2020-2021 Energy Symposium Series | Critical Issues in Energy, “Mitigating Natural Gas Flaring.”
The extraction of crude oil from underground reservoirs also brings to the surface dissolved or “associated” natural gas. The expansion of hydraulic fracturing and technological advancements have led to the production of gas reservoirs and a sharp decrease in the price of natural gas. This combined with the “assembly line” approach to the production of oil from shale reservoirs has resulted in the dramatic growth of oil production and a stranding of the produced “associated” gas. Often this valuable by-product of oil production is burnt in a flare. This flaring has resulted in significant environmental concerns and a public opposition to the issue of flaring. This symposium will discuss the challenges, opportunities and advancements in technology and policy that will foster a safer and environmentally friendly oil and gas production.
