NNPC puts Nigeria’s gas flare rate at 12%

THE Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has put gas flare rate in Nigeria at 12 per cent. The Corporation stated this in its monthly and operations report for August.

The monthly report which was released on Tuesday in Abuja said that the 12 per cent gas flare rate was as at August 2017 compared to 10.03 per cent for the preceding month of July 2017.

Nigeria was among countries with highest gas flare rates, but a number of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects aimed at appropriate gas utilisation have improved the country’s standing in this regard.
