Global Flaring Perceptions Survey: a 60-second research survey from Capterio
Large volumes of natural gas are produced by the oil and gas industry. Much of this gas is so-called "associated gas" which is produced as a byproduct of oil production. Unfortunately in the process of production, large volumes of gas are flared (see photo) which represents a tremendous economic and environmental opportunity.

Capterio is a project developer that invests in delivering on-the-ground flare reduction solutions. More information is available on www.capterio.com.

We would like to thank you for completing this short survey. It's part of our ongoing research to better understand how different groups of people view the challenges from, and opportunities that result from the flaring of natural gas. Please note that this survey is entirely confidential and uses no personal data.
Just so we are clear what we are talking about, here are a couple of images of flaring at an oilfield in Iraq
About you
Please provide some demographic data for supporting analysis
What's your association with the oil and gas industry? *
Please identify the role that fits best with you
Where do you live? *
How old are you, in years? *
How did you come across this survey? *
And now for some questions specifically on the flaring of natural gas
How much gas was flared in 2019 as a percentage of total gas consumption?
Clear selection
How significant is flaring today in terms of global CO2-equivalent emissions?
Note we include here the emission of both CO2 and methane from flares. Methane is 84x more potent than CO2 on a 20-year view.
Clear selection
Why does flaring happen? Please rank the reasons from 1 (highest = most important) to 5 (lowest = least important) *
The form requires you use only one rank option per reason. On a phone? The last options are probably revealed if you scroll right - or rotate your device!
1 - highest
2
3
4
5 - lowest
There is a lack of skills and technology
The regulator is not effective enough at stopping flaring
Flaring is not sufficiently "on the radar" of those that flare
The economic incentives are not sufficient (it is uneconomic)
There is a lack of financial investment (e.g. to establish key infrastructure)
What are the main benefits of reducing flaring? Please rank them from 1 (highest benefit) to 4 (lowest benefit) *
The form requires you use only one rank option per benefit. On a phone? The last options are probably revealed if you scroll right - or rotate your device!
1 - highest
2
3
4 - lowest
Better reputation for the oil and gas industry
Improved revenue for companies and countries
Improved local heath and safety
Lower contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions
Which feature do you think would be most important for a company like Capterio (a project developer focussed on monetising wasted gas) to offer?
Capterio delivers on-the-ground solutions by bringing together assets, solutions and financing
Clear selection
What other thoughts or ideas would you like to share? For example, what radical ideas do you have to solve the challenge?
This is optional, but we would welcome any thoughts you might have
Bonus question!
