Flaring is the burning of natural gas when the product cannot otherwise be captured and produced.  The European Space Agency provides thermal fire and hotspot geospatial surveillance data.  Detected flare locations are mapped with oil and gas infrastructure data in a GIS environment to identify probable sources.  Regulatory enforcement is the purpose of the program. 

Flaring from start-up operations on the deepwater Atlantis platform.
