ABSTRACT
Nigeria is a country blessed with vast oil and natural gas resources and due to inadequate management of resources most of the natural gas is flared. One of the most pressing challenges today is global warming. Gas flaring has been known to deliver carbon dioxide and other ozone depleting substances which causes unnatural weather change. This paper emphasizes on gas flaring; its definition, composition, types and classifications. It also highlights the policies that have been made in Nigeria concerning gas flaring and provides alternative solutions to gas flaring.
