Air Quality

Along with crude oil, the Meged wells produce Associated Petroleum Gas (APG). This gas is composed of 75% methane, 10% carbon dioxide, along with some heavier hydrocarbons. The gas is separated from the crude oil on the surface and (until a gas utilization solution is found) is currently being flared in Green Flares, whose purpose is to prevent air pollution in accordance with international standards.

These flares, in addition to cleanly burning the gas, are enclosed, in order to prevent having an open flame, and in so doing, prevents light pollution during the night hours.
