Flare monitoring system is the ability of system to detect the level of thermal radiations and the size of flare generated by the industry. There is always the need of reliable flare monitoring so that the chances of risk associated with large flare can be minimized. Flaring can occur across the petrochemical, oil & gas, or other manufacturing industries due to equipment testing, unit malfunctions, or any unfortunate circumstances. Flaring of gas contributes to climate change and also impacts on the environment through the emission of CO2, black carbon, and other harmful pollutants. Flaring can be categorized as initial start-up flaring, continuous production flaring, planned operational flaring, unplanned operational flaring, and safety flaring. Lack of gas utilization infrastructure, preventive maintenance tasks associated with plants, any kind of modifications or constructions on plant, failure of the safety instruments such as gas & fire detectors, failure due to corrosion, or any other interruptions cause flaring. Flare monitoring system must be capable of flare size tracking and efficient to automatic generation of the signal, so that the danger can be avoided.
Stringent government environmental regulations related to industrial gas emission, requirement of real time flare monitoring system, and requirement of enhanced & increased safety norms & global industry standardization, drive the growth of the flare monitoring market. The global environment is facing a huge problem of water pollution, air pollution, and others. The government across the globe is taking harsh steps to curb out this problem. It is not only affecting the air or water quality but it also creating an impact on the livelihood of common people, animals, as well as the whole ecosystem. This creates an adverse health related problem across the globe. However, governments, oil companies, and development institutions around the world are encouraged to endorse the Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 Initiative is expected to restrict the market growth. This Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 initiative is introduced by the World Bank to bring together oil refineries, government, and development institutions that identify the flaring situation, which is hazardous and dangerous, to agree to cooperate to eliminate routine flaring no later than 2030.
The initiative is focused on routine flaring rather than ignoring or infrequent operations. Routine flaring of gas is a normal periodic flaring during normal oil production operations in the absence of sufficient facilities to re-inject the produced gas, use it on the site for some other applications, or deliver it to a market. Expelling is not an acceptable substitute for flaring. Conversely, rise in demand of flare monitoring system due to rapid industrialization across the developing nations such as India, Korea, Brazil, and others are expected to provide potential growth opportunities for the market. For example, Siqura B.V., a public-owned company with its headquarters located in Netherlands, offers first automatic flare stacking monitoring system with flare size tracking and automatic event signaling. The newly launched system is capable of tracking and monitoring the methanol, which is not visible to regular cameras, potential size of flare, weather conditions, smoke detection during day time, and changes in wind directions.
