Gas Flaring

From the World Bank: “The Global Gas Flaring Reduction partnership estimates that over 150 billion cubic meters of natural gas are being flared and vented annually.  That is the equivalent of the combined annual gas consumption of Germany and France. The public-private partnership of governments, state-owned companies and major international oil companies, which is chaired by Bank, estimates that CO2 emissions from flaring are about 13% of committed emission reductions by developed countries under the Kyoto Protocol for the period 2008-2012.” (link)
