The air-assisted, continuous flare at QIT (Qua Iboe Terminal), Mobil Producing Nigeria, burns low pressure, high molecular weight gas. An increase in production volume to the terminal resulted in higher gas rates to the flare system, exceeding the original flare design. The flare facilities were re-engineered and modified using key design parameters for smokeless flares. The modified facilities were successfully restarted and functioned properly at the higher flare rates.
