Gas flaring mitigation solution
Environmental
Complete flaring elimination at locations with minimum of 350 MCF flared a day. No CO2 emissions caused by flaring where EZ Smartgrid System is deployed.
Regulatory
Meet rapidly growing regulation and tightening environmental guidelines without interruptions of the operation by reducing harmful emissions.
Economic
Zero upfront cost to producers. Additional royalties to landowners by bringing flared gas to market on site without building physical pipeline infrastructure.
Flaring problem
2020, the World Bank estimated annual Gas flaring increasedto 5.3 trillion ft3 of natural gas. Highest in a decade. (25% of total U.S. consumption)
5.3 trillion cubic feet
of natural gas are flared or vented annually
Equivalent to 25%
of the United States' yearly gas consumption
$30.6 billion
is approximate cost of flared natural gas according to the World Bank
More than
400 million tons
of carbon dioxide equivalent are emitted into the atmosphere annually
Problems with existing flaring solutions
Most of the information here is based on a research paper from U. S. Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory
Economical problem
Most popular existing flaring solutions are NGl recovery:striping natural gas liquids from the natural gas and liquifying natural gas (LNG) to deliver it to the market. Both of these solutions are very expensive on CAPEX and may not prove to be economically feasible. Dealing with the liquids is very expensive when thinking about transportation, stability and price. Because of inconsistent gas volumes and pressure, it is also hardly possible to predict the project's economical side. Power generation does not prove to work by itself because of regulatory difficulties to sell power to the grid and lack of power line infrastructure.
Slow Infrastructure development problem
It may take a few years to develop and build all needed infrastructure to solve flaring on scale such as gathering lines, pipelines, power lines, gas processing facilities, etc and usually when it is built the problem still exists because of the higher production volume and therefore higher flaring numbers.
Environmental problem
Some of the solutions do not solve a flaring problem completely. NGL recovery for example just strips rich BTU liquids from flared gas but the lean gas flaring still occurs. This type of flaring reduces the CO2 emissions by an insignificant amount. Flaring releases significant greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere and doesn't produce any work (useful energy) as a result.

It is a unique solution for the existing wasted energy problem in oil fields. It consists of a mobile gas engine generator which converts wasted, flared gas into electricity which is immediately used onsite to power the  mobile data center, EZ Smartbox.

EZ Blockchain developed a mobile flaring mitigation system available to be deployed right on the  oil well pads to reduce flaring, called EZ Smartgrid Flaring Mitigation System (FMS).

This unique system does not require connection to the grid, all electricity produced is used onsite.

Instead of flaring wasted associated gas can be harnessed by gas engine generator to produce electricity, then the electricity is used to power mobile data center on the well pad without distributing energy to the grid.

Benefits
Environmental

Complete flaring elimination at locations with a minimum of 350 MCF flared a day. No CO2 emissions caused by flaring where EZ Smartgrid System is deployed.

Regulatory

Meet rapidly growing regulation and tightening environmental guidelines without interruptions of the operation by reducing harmful emissions.

Economic

Zero upfront cost to producers. Additional royalties to landowners by bringing flared gas to market on site without building physical pipeline infrastructure.
