A limited flare and vent gas measurement program was conducted during the period of 14 to 16 August 2015 at the following selected Operator No. 1 facilities in Colombia: 

  • CCAC.3 Oilfield (Conventional Oil Production)
  • CCAC.1 Oilfield (Thermal Heavy Oil Production)

Supplemental information was provided by the operations centre for each oilfield, including activity data, commodity pricing and production decline rates. The overall purpose of this study was, for the surveyed facilities, to identify and conduct a pre-feasibility assessment of practicable flare and vent gas reduction opportunities in terms of their magnitude, most suitable control option, feasibility, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions, secondary environmental benefits and energy conservation. The surveyed facilities were selected by Operator No. 1 as being representative of sites likely to offer such opportunities.
