Haynesville Shale: Record Natural Gas Production

Flaring is a disgrace and also a sign of a dysfunctioning regulatory environment. Let me suggest a solution. How about a rule that tells oil developers that if they flare for longer than a few months, he will lose title to the gas before the burner tip and it belongs to the community which means that anyone with a plan can come and use it. If the developer frustrates such efforts to take the gas, they are liable to penalties. I am sure that developers don’t want third parties crawling around on their flare patches and would cooperate. Use it or lose it. I am open to amendments.
