Gas flare

is used for burning off the non-compliant gas and gas condensate mixtures released during the facilities operation or emergency gas discharges. Flare types used in the gas industry include horizontal, elevated and ground flares. Gas flares are located in special pits above and below the ground level. Gas is burnt in the flare stack and right in the pit.
