I think flaring is just a horrible waste, just terrible. As well as just not being very environmentally smart. But I think all these people that had mineral rights and that money is just literally being burned away. Oil companies can afford to lose some gas because they’re making all kinds of money anyway. To think of all of that stuff that got up in the air and will never be captured is just terrible. The state too, it costs the state because they don’t get to collect the royalties on burned gas.
