Texas Railroad Commission: Statewide Gas Flaring Falls to Lowest Rate in Years

AUSTIN (Railroad Commission of Texas) – In July, the statewide flaring rate in Texas fell to its lowest rate in years according to Railroad Commission data, falling by more than 75% since August 2019.

The Commission’s recent production data report shows that the percentage of natural gas flared fell from a high of 2.33% in August 2019 to 0.57% in July 2021.  Overall, the average percentage of natural gas flared has remained under 2 percent for nearly two years, giving Texas one of the lowest in flaring rates among large oil and gas producing states in the country.

“This is great news for Texas, but it’s not surprising,” said Commissioner Wayne Christian after reviewing the report.
