Flare gas reduction
Elaborating on Qatargas' flare reduction initiatives he added: "Qatargas has made significant progress in reducing flaring from its LNG trains in line with the increased national focus on flare minimization and the company's desire to reduce its emissions and carbon footprint. This has been made possible through operational initiatives on source reduction, increased plant reliability, reduced shutdown/start-up flaring and a sustained focus on flare minimization facilitated by multi-disciplinary Flare Management Teams".
