Associated Gas Flaring as a Factor of Dwindling Ecological Integrity in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria

Onyenekenwa Cyprian Eneh and Smart Ndubisi Uchegbu

Abstract:
The petroleum-rich River Niger Delta Region of Nigeria has been subject to crude oil exploration since 1958 after the mineral oil was found in commercial quantity in 1956 in Oloibiri in the present Bayelsa State of Nigeria. Petroleum exploration activities, including associated gas flaring, occasion environmental degradation and the attendant dwindling ecological integrity of the region’s ecosystem. The review recommends, among others, enactment and enforcement of appropriate bills, remediation projects and explorer-responsibility.
