Technology qualification is a vital process for de-risking new technologies. This paper provides an overview of a recent technology qualification for a system which converts the normally burned and wasted energy in flare gas into a usable fuel for various applications (flare-to-fuel), thereby reducing the need for other high emissions fuels and providing decarbonization benefits to the end user and the environment. The scope of the qualification process followed a risk-based approach that included the review of technical documents, a technical workshop to identify novel technology aspects and potential threats, and a list of mitigation actions summarized in a Technology Qualification Plan. After successful completion of this first phase of the technology qualification process, according to DNV-RP-A203 [1], DNV issued a Statement of Endorsement of the Qualification Plan.
