EverGreen minimal environmental impact well effluent burner flare

Reduced-emissions well testing technologies and techniques

No matter your facilities limitations, we have reduced-emissions well testing and cleanup technologies and techniques to optimize your operations. In cases where oil flaring cannot be avoided, technologies such as the EverGreen minimal environmental impact well effluent burner deliver 99.84% peak combustion efficiency (99.5% average combustion efficiency) for the clean disposal of well effluent―both onshore and offshore.

The EverGreen burner is the industry's only DNV–verified burner for environmental performance, efficiently disposing of well effluent. No matter the type of oil or environment, the EverGreen burner performs fallout-free, smokeless combustion of the liquid hydrocarbons produced during well testing and cleanup.
