This guidance provides governments, industry and other stakeholders with a framework to continue the process of ending routine flaring. It details new flaring management and reduction developments, and examines industry experiences with eliminating flaring, new technologies, business models, operational improvements and regulatory policy. It also features case studies and examples of positive change, showing how governments and companies have reduced flaring and put the gas to productive use. Importantly, it also includes a section for governments and regulatory bodies, showing how they can encourage and incentivize the utilization of associated gas, demonstrating the climate, social and financial benefits that working together with industry on flare reduction can have for communities.
