We are FGN’s one stop shop for gas flare down management. We do this by: 

  • Developing a new gas flare regulation and guidelines for the industry;
  • Monetising flare gas through a well-coordinated, orderly and centralized process;
  • Single point interface for establishing emission control baselines, carbon credit earnings and trade;
  • Develop a Methodology to collect, arrange process and interpret flare data for bankability i.e. collect and structure/organize “relevant” Data; and
  • Defining clear operating windows and performance criteria.
On behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria, this programme seeks to attract investments and develop a transparent market mechanism through a competitive procurement process for allocating gas flares, under clear and transparent criteria, to competent third party investors using proven technologies in commercial application globally. The Nigerian Gas Flare Commercialization Programme (NGFCP) is an opportunity for Government, industry, State Government, ethnic nationalities, and local communities to work together to resolve an oil field unacceptable practice.
