The Alexandria Petroleum Company tasked the Petroleum Safety & Environmental Services Company (PetroSafe) with executing a flare gas reduction project using Flare IQ technology in cooperation with Baker Hughes.
The Flare IQ system is one of the latest international technologies in this field.
The project comes as part of an effort by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources to reduce harmful flare gas emissions at petroleum sites. This further reinforces its commitment to climate action given Egypt’s hosting of COP 27 set to take place this November.
Moreover, this project is of great importance to mitigate the harmful effects of flare gases on human life and the environment. This reflects the commitment of the petroleum sector to apply the highest Egyptian and international standards to preserve the environment.
Burning the flare gas leads to the release of large quantities of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, in addition to volatile organic compounds and other hazardous substances.
The reduction and reuse of these gases will represent major economic and environmental benefits by using Flare IQ technology in cooperation with Baker Hughes, where this smart technology relies on the use of advanced software and algorithms to adjust the performance of the flame and reduce harmful gas emissions to the least possible degree.
