Case Study: Reducing black carbon and methane emissions through cost-effective flaring mitigation opportunities in Colombia


The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) through Clearstone Engineering Ltd conducted a technology demonstration project to help oil and gas companies identify profitable opportunities to recover high-value, condensable liquids from flared associated gas. Recovery of these liquids from associated gas that is high in VOCs can reduce black carbon emissions from the gas when it is flared. At the same time, recovered liquids may be integrated into liquids production and processing infrastructure, potentially adding significant revenues.

This case study/resource was contributed by Clearstone Engineering for as part of the “Reducing Short-lived Climate Pollutants in States & Regions” project of Under2 Coalition. The aim of this project is to support member states that are part of the Under2 Coalition to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas operations within their jurisdictions, thereby demonstrating the feasibility of reducing SLCPs at the sub-national level to peers within the Coalition, as well as national governments.
