Minister to present concrete initiatives against routine flaring in North Sea

Danish Minister of Energy, Climate and Utilities Dan Jørgensen is ready to look into changing the rules to put a stop to routine flaring in the Danish part of the North sea, vowing to present potential solution during consultations on the matter, which EnergyWatch uncovered.
