Pictured configuration: In this picture, a 4" x 40' flare stack is being raised by an operator. Notice the guide lines hanging from the boom. These lines, along with the support arms keep the flare steady in windy conditions while not requiring permanent site alteration. It's this method of stabilization that makes these flares 'zero ground disturbance'.


Pictured above: This picture shows a Firefly portable flare being used to burn off ethane. The ethane is coming in at -44F, hence the frost on the main flare pipe.
