That flares; flaming or blazing unsteadily; shining out with a dazzling light.
The burning of gas vented through a pipe or stack at a refinery, or a method of disposing of gas while a well is being drilled. Flaring is regulated by state agencies. Venting (letting gas escape unburned) is generally prohibited.
Burning of gas for the purpose of safe disposal.
The careful burning off of landfill gas.
When a torch is turned upside down, the liquid Propane gradually makes its way to the torch orifice. When this happens a large amount of Propane or even liquid propane will come out of the orifice producing an uncontrolled yellow flame. Flaring is prevented on Bernzomatic torches by controlling the orifice sizes, gas pressure reductions & thermal mass of the torch. MAPP gas & cold weather will produce more of a flaring problem.
having a gradual increase in width; "flared nostrils"; "a skirt flaring from the waist"
the burning of methane emitted from collection pipes at a landfill.
The controlled burning off of combustible gases mainly for safety reasons.
The act, illegal in the United States, of burning gas that could not be sold at the field site.
The controlled and safe burning of gas which cannot be used for commercial or technical reasons.
Controlled burning of natural gas that cannot be processed for sale because of technical or economic reasons. The biggest portion is solution gas flaring, which involves the burning of natural gas produced along with crude oil and bitumen. Flaring contributes primarily to emissions of sulphur dioxide and greenhouse gases. Depending on the combustion efficiency of the flare, there may be other compounds produced in very small quantities, some of which are considered to be toxic.
Disposing of waste gas by burning
The controlled ignition of natural gas at a wellhead.
the practice of burning off waste gas or oil during a test or production cycle.
The burning of waste gases through a flare stack or other device before releasing them to the air. ()
