The vast quantities of ‘waste carbon’ that are flared globally each year could instead be used to offset coal-fired power generation and drive down global emissions. Gas2Wire can help to make this a reality.
Based on 2015 emissions data, Russia followed by Iraq, Iran, USA, Venezuela, Algeria, Nigeria, Mexico and Angola have been ranked as the largest emitters of Green House Gases ‘GHGs’ as a direct result of flaring. Each emitted over 6,000kt of CO2 equivalents (>118BCF each). Within a further bracket, 3,000-6,000kt (59-83BCF), are Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Egypt, Indonesia, Oman, Libya, India, Saudi Arabia, China, Turkmenistan and Canada. For context, Russia’s 38,000kt of upstream CO2e (745BCF), if used entirely for Gas2Wire instead of being flared had the potential to produce in the region of 76TWh (enough to power the whole of the Philippines/Kazakhstan/Pakistan for 1 year).
