The State of Kuwait is one of the major oil-producing countries with its economy solely and directly dependent on export of crude oil and its refined products. Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) is responsible for the exploration, development and production of marketable quality hydrocarbon, Although KOC has a very strict flaring policy and practices, emission of some gaseous pollutants to the atmosphere; particularly from the flaring of normally undesirable effluent streams and excess gases. This study provides a comprehensive account and estimates of all emissions of primary pollutants associated with flaring activities from Kuwait Oilfields. This inventory provides the monthly emissions for a decade starting for year 1997 of air pollutants: NOx, SO2, CO, CO2, methane and non-methane hydrocarbons. The emissions are generated from various point sources and aggregated to obtain total pollutants load of ambient air in and around oilfields. The emissions of pollutants from the flaring associated with all types of operations in the oilfields, gathering centres (GC), booster stations (BS), tank areas and other oil production related emission activities.
