Koya University Int Workshop on Gas Flares April 2018

Image result for Kirku gasGas flares provide for safe emergency release of purged or waste gases from refineries, unrecoverable gases from oil wells, blast furnaces gases, coke oven gases, and waste gases from chemical plants. Flares also process waste gases from sewage digesters, coal and bio-mass gasifiers and fertilizer plants. Gas flares safely dispose of vapor streams by “combusting” them under controlled conditions to minimize impact on nearby equipment or personnel while meeting environmental regulations and public relations requirements. Gas flaring in Russia, Iraq, and Iran represented approximately 39% of the 1,500 billion cubic meters of gas flared world-wide in 2016. The international workshop on gas flares (IWGF) workshop that will be held at Koya University is designed to provide information on flare design and operation with a focus on emissions monitoring and control in the oil and gas industry. Therefore, it is expected to attract a high number of Flare Engineers and Operators from oil and gas industry, Construction, HSE and Process Experts from over Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries.
