GE study finds 5% of worlds natural gas production wasted per year by flaring

Green Car Congress

While nearly half of the population has no access to electricity, the country spends nearly $13 billion per year on diesel-powered generation and perhaps 10GW of potential electricity is flared away. Elsewhere in West Africa, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Congo and Cameroon collectively waste about 10 billion cubic meters of natural gas every year. —David Victor, director of the Laboratory on International Law & Regulation at the University of California San Diego.
