Flaring at oil and natural gas facilities is a source of black carbon and methane emissions, which are both powerful short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs).

Black carbon influences the climate by directly absorbing light, reducing the reflectivity of snow and ice through deposition, and interacting with clouds.

In order to reduce emissions from flared associated gas, The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) through Clearstone Engineering Ltd conducted a technology demonstration project to help oil and gas companies identify profitable opportunities to recover high-value, condensable liquids from flared associated gas. 

This case study was developed as part of the Methane Project. The aim of this project is to support Under2 Coalition members to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas operations within their jurisdictions and showcase their achievements to other governments.
