Environmental risks relate mainly to targeted and highly targeted emissions of natural gas (mainly composed of methane) that are lighter than the air and constitute a significant and much more effective greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
The use of these gases is subject to a wide range of legislation. Such as the Gas (Safety and Licensing) Law, 1989, which deals with these gases, as well as general legislation on safety and on hazardous substances, including Standards, guidelines and procedures that also have significance in determining the legal responsibility of the companies and their managers.
