Flare Group BAT Technical Document

At the request of P W Well Test and a number of operators onshore (in the UK), Zetland Group was commissioned to undertake a technical review of Best Available Technique (BAT), as it relates to types of flaring systems for use in hydrocarbon exploration onshore.

The technical review informed a technical document prepared by Zetland Group, which set out a justification for the P W Well Test shrouded ground flare to be considered BAT for hydrocarbon exploration onshore. In addition, the document provided a detailed specification and environmental performance data for the P W Well Test shrouded ground flare. The purpose of this document is to provide a clear and consistent specification and justification for the use of the shrouded ground flare during hydrocarbon exploration onshore and can be used in support of applications to the Environment Agency under the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010, as amended (EPR2010).
