Gas Flaring Reduction is Possible
By Nataša Kubíková
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in cooperation with the Egyptian oil sector held a prominent workshop on gas flaring reduction in the oil and gas sector in March 2016. At the Cairo event, Egypt Oil&Gas had an opportunity to meet EBRD’s Associate Director, CRISTIAN CARRARETTO, to discuss the Bank’s support for the country in - what has already become - a global initiative - Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 - to eliminate routine gas flaring detrimental to the oil and gas industry in economic terms, to the country’s social development, and most alarmingly to environmental concerns.
