HC Deb 22 October 1979 vol 972 c76W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Energy how much gas has been flared in the North Sea during the past three months; and how this compares with the volume of inland gas consumption during the same period.

Mr. Gray

In June, July and August 1979, 21 million tonnes of United King-don continental shelf oil was produced and 670 million cubic feet per day of gas was flared offshore compared with 2,046 million cubic feet per day supplied by BGC in the same period.
