Flaring gas is one of the largest problems impacting the oil and gas industry today. This problem not only pollutes the environment but also costs billions of dollars in wasted resources. Regulation of flaring gas both in the United States and around the world, represents a tremendous challenge for energy producers. Unstable Oil & Gas prices and the unpredictable rise and fall in production volumes, make fixed infrastructure solutions untenable.
