The extraction of oil from deep within the earth, also releases natural gas that is trapped in the ground. This released gas was usually flared-off into the atmosphere. Since 2003, in an effort to minimise the environmental impact of our operation – and to enhance the economic value of our assets, Daleel has established gas station Train 1 to convert natural gas into Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Natural Gas Liquefied (NGL). This station is equipped with the latest technology and is run by a team of specialists.
As part of our 'Towards Zero Flaring' initiative, gas flaring is significantly reduced from Block 5 after commissioning of Gas Train 2 in 2017. Flaring is continuously monitored on a daily basis and necessary steps are taken to reduce the process flare to minimum practical levels.
