Why Generate Electricity from Flare Gas?

Power generation from flare gas presents an opportunity for:

  • Reduction in emissions of hazardous chemicals
  • Reduction in Kyoto or other environmental commitments
  • Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improvement in health through reduction of respiratory disease
  • Reduced political pressure on the government
  • Reduced potential for total “brown outs” by contributing distributed electrical energy sources
  • Revenue generating use of a “free” resource that otherwise
    causes problems
  • Just 7c/kWh = $19.44/GJ

Benefits of distributed generation interconnection:

  • Increased Reliability
  • System Voltage Support
  • Reduced Transmission/Distribution Costs
  • Increased Energy Efficiency
  • Environmental Emissions Reduction
  • New Technology Applications
  • Other

Can resolve environmental issues:

  • Can improve profitability by using a wasted resource
  • Can reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Can reduce environmental health issues
  • Cogeneration and Distributed Generation is key to efficient resource production
  • New, efficient environmentally friendly, Distributed Generation technologies have been developed
  • Can gain more public and landowner support
  • Can improve power reliability
  • Can be used to access shut in oil/gas to further increase
