Associated gas is estimated to account for 17% of global gas reserves. However, the majority of associatedgas resources are small or located offshore, which has made their use uneconomical. Operators thus have preferred either flaring or reinjecting the gas rather than use. There are a number of gas technologies that have the potential to make the development of stranded gas resources economically viable. The full-length paper details a study that investigated each of these processes on the basis of different variables.
