On other side, GE Energy report said the main contributor of greenhouse gas emissions are associated gas flaring from oil and gas industry. What is associated gas flaring? In oil exploration and production, associated is hydrocarbon gas from the well. When extracting the crude oil from the well, this associated gas will flow together with oil. However some of the gas will utilized for power generation and heating. The rest of gas will be flared if there is no export gas or injection gas facilities available. The gas is burnt without generating any utilities power. Why the gas must be flared? It is due to safety issue. When unburnt hydrocarbon gas release to atmospheric will threaten the workers.

The company shall use most energy efficiency machine or technology to reduce the greenhouse gas emission. They should more environmental responsible.
