The refinery has four elevated flares, one each for hydroskimmer, hydrocracker, and condensate units of 211 and 411. The sources of flaring are mainly from fractioners overhead of the process units and non-condensable hydrogen.

The refinery has identified the major sources of flaring by introducing spider diagrams in the operating units, taking prompt action to minimise flaring creating awareness at the individual and team levels, which have combined to contribute to increase the profitability of the company, reduce pollution, protect environment and reduce occupational hazards, said a publication of Takreer.
