This paper summarizes the Flaring Management Guidance document (2021) developed in partnership by Ipieca, IOGP, and GGFR, which outlines potential options in flaring management and reduction, and offers suggestions for operational improvements and how governments and regulatory bodies can encourage and incentivize productive use of associated gas[1]. The guidance builds on the importance of knowledge sharing and collaboration as a key step in overcoming the barriers to both the reduction of flaring and the use or conservation of associated gas. Its novelty originates from a shared understanding developed over many years by the oil and gas industry, regulators, and other stakeholders that support sustainable growth and align their commitments to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals[2].
