Our Enclosed Ground Flare*
*Coming in 2022
New Enclosed Ground Flare
We have listened to our local communities and are committed to making our operations much quieter and less visible by installing a new Enclosed Ground Flare (EGF).
On schedule to be installed by the end of 2022, it is intended wholly to reduce disruption to the community should we need to use our flare.
Using Best Available Technology it is designed to deliver a number of benefits:
- Reduce use of existing elevated flare by at least 98%
- No vibration
- Quieter than a petrol lawnmower
- Largely invisible on a clear day or night
- Completely smokeless
