Green Car Congress

If half of this flare gas (25 bcm per year) was captured and sold at prevailing domestic prices in Russia, the economic opportunity may exceed US$2 billion (65 billion rubles). Although Nigeria has reduced flare gas emissions by 28% from 2000 levels, the country’s oil industry still wastes 15bcm of natural gas every year. Elsewhere in West Africa, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Congo and Cameroon collectively waste about 10 billion cubic meters of natural gas every year.
