Associated petroleum gas burning out of 10 gas refineries operational at the giant South Pars Gas Field off the Persian Gulf decreased by 21.6% last year compared to the year before.
According to South Pars Gas Complex — the main operator of refineries at the gas field — SPGC is expected to curb natural gas flaring to zero by 2022 within the framework of "South Pars Sustainable Development Plan" -- a five-year plan of action to curtail gas flaring in the world's largest gas reservoir shared between Iran and Qatar.
The scheme will help Iran to move forward on in fulfilling its pledge to cut back greenhouse gas emissions by preventing significant amounts of associated gas from being released into the atmosphere.
