Abstract

Incineration of associated petroleum gas (APG) is an economically and environmentally unsustainable way to utilize it. Availability of APG incineration data varies by country; often statistics are limited or irrelevant. At present, satellite monitoring is the only instrumental method for measuring gas flaring volumes that is not related to the activities of oil and gas companies. However, the development of a monitoring methodology is faced with the need to process large amounts of data and introduce an algorithm for estimating volumes of burned gas. This paper describes an algorithm developed for the VIIRS sensor, and an analysis of the data obtained on the territory of Russia for the observation period.
