The Gas Flare Tracker system provides data and insight that will help guide regulation, incentives and investment aimed at reducing gas flaring and its impacts while increasing energy security and prosperity for Niger Delta communities and Nigeria as a whole.
The application is an online map that displays a number of physical/geographical GIS layers alongside satellite data on gas flares collected by the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). These satellite measurements from NOAA form the basis of all the calculations on the Gas Flare Tracker.
This accompanying paper outlines how industry, regulators and Civil Society can use and add to the data available in the Gas Flare Tracker in order to make the powerful case for ending gas flaring in Nigeria and converting this useful gas into power that addresses the countries acute energy shortages.
