ABFlare Tool Update

Brian Zelt, Zelt Professional Services Inc.

The Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada (PTAC) and Alberta Energy
Regulator (AER) with guidance from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) Non-Routine Flaring Task Team have developed ABflare for evaluating non-routine and routine flaring for sour gas facilities.

This User Guide is for the ABflare modelling spreadsheet and associated modules. The User Guide outlines how to install the files, use the model and provides examples on the use of the model. The ABflare model is an extension of the AERflare model. The user must have a good understanding of the AERflare and CALPUFF model user guides before proceeding with the ABflare model. The ABflare user guide only discusses AERflare inputs as necessary or relevant to the ABflare model, otherwise the user is directed to the AERflare user guide (AER 2014).
