Zero Flaring Ventures in Two Ahvaz Oilfields

Efforts are underway to end gas flaring in two oilfields in the southern province of Khuzestan in the coming months, a senior official at the National Iranian Oil Company said.
"The gas flaring in Ahvaz-3 Oilfield will end by late May and the burning APG in Ahvaz-2 Oilfield will be harnessed within the next three to four months," Bijan Alipour, director of the National Iranian South Oil Company (an NIOC subsidiary), was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
The official added that the associate petroleum gas emitted from Ahvaz-2 and Ahvaz-3 oilfields will be harnessed and transferred to petrochemical complexes to produce value-added commodities.
Flaring is the burning of natural gas that cannot be processed or sold. The flaring of APG is an important safety measure at many oil and gas production sites, as it prevents industrial plant equipment from over-pressuring and exploding.
Alipour said operations to reduce gases emitted from the oilfields are under development, though major hurdles have lowered the pace of such processes.
