Qatar Today - - ENERGY SPOTLIGHT -

The Al Karkara oil field, the lat­est oil field to be de­vel­oped in Qatar, is the first in the coun­try to be zero gas flar­ing. Qatar, through its in­dus­trial strat­egy, is con­tribut­ing to the pro­tec­tion of the global en­vi­ron­ment pur­suant to the Ky­oto Pro­to­col of 1997, and to in­ter­na­tional eco­nomic sta­bil­ity by se­cur­ing size­able, long-term sup­plies of cleaner en­ergy from liq­ue­fied nat­u­ral gas. It has joined the World Bank’s Global Gas Flar­ing Re­duc­tion Pro­gramme and car­ried out a ma­jor flar­ing re­duc­tion ini­tia­tive at the Al Shaheen oil field, which is likely to gen­er­ate some 2.5 mil­lion cred­its of Cer­ti­fied Emis­sion Re­duc­tions per year.
