The year-on-year data shows that gas flaring dropped 21.75% in Q1 from 57.93bcf in Q1 2020.
The Federal Government (FG), in December 2016, launched the Nigerian Gas Flare Commercialisation Programme.
The programme seeks to curb gas flaring in the country by improving gas utilisation in the country.
As a result, the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) showed that 203 companies had been awarded the right to process flared gas from the 178 gas flared sites.
