Join Carl, Site Shift Manager and Charlotte, Energy Coordinator in explaining the use of our flares.
Behavioural changes driving reduction in flaring
We are proud of the innovative behavioural changes we have made to how we operate and the specific targeting of reduction in flaring that has positively influenced a return to historic norms.
Our level of flaring in 2022 was the lowest since 2014, and less than half the amount recorded in 2021 and 2020.
Furthermore, our flaring rate last year was the second lowest level recorded in the previous nine years.
In line with our sustainable environmental performance we have made a conscious effort to minimise potential sources of flaring. The data shows we have made progress and we will always strive to limit flaring events.
Although our flares will always be a critical safety measure, we will continue to rigorously pursue technical performance, process improvements and new technology to further decrease the use of our flares.
