Flame boom. An oil rig worker is seen climbing an access ramp to the flame boom, which burns off excess gas. This disposal method is used when the volume of gas is not sufficient to justify extraction for commercial use. The oil platform is situated in the Rospo Mare oilfield in the Adriatic Sea, off the northern coast of Italy.
