Murphy Oil USA refinery in Chalmette in St. Bernard Parish , Louisiana with a gas flair that lights up the evening sky for miles. When oil plants experience a condition of over pressurization they burn off some of the oil with a controlled flair. Flairs from oil and gas wells are a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions. Louisiana is dependent on oil money that fuels the state economy.
