    Gas gathering picks up pace

    Iran plans to gather 8.2 mcm/d of flare gas as of next calendar year (starting on 21 March 2023), which would increase 18.2 mcm/d during next year. Therefore, Iran would have gathered 50% of its flare gas by March 2024. In the calendar year to March 2025, Iran would be gathering 17 mcm/d of flare gas and during the following year, gas gathering would be at 7 mcm/d. Therefore, Iran would have gathered all its flare gas by 2025. Over 150 bcm of flare gas is turned into air pollutants at oil wells every year across the world. According to the World Bank (WB), that is equal to one-third of Europe’s total gas consumption. According to WB data, until 2018, Iran was the third largest producer of flare gas, behind Russia and Iraq. Flaring in Iran was down from 17 bcm in 2018 to 13.78 bcm in 2019.
