The Guidelines for Producers’ Associated Gas Utilisation Project provides details on the projects oil producers can establish under the 2018 Flare Gas Regulations.
Sec. 2.3 describes permission for associated gas projects:
As from the effective date of the Regulations, the acceptable options to obtain a Permit to Access Flare Gas are: (a) Third Party Gas Commercialization Projects following the procedures laid out in the Guidelines for Grant of Permit to Access Flare Gas; and (b) Producer’s Approved Flare Out Project following the procedures laid out in these Guidelines.
The Guidelines then explain the conditions for a producer's project.
The goal of developing associated gas projects is largely to reduce the flaring and venting of methane gas.
