The flaring is a normal practice in the oil and gas industry to achieve a safe and reliable process during the emergency situation. This situation is a routine practice for oil and gas production by controlled burning of natural gas. The burning process can cause hazards by explosion or at the very least surrounding environment will be affected by heat radiation during vent stack burning operation. Hence, investigation of the gas flaring produced by the vent stack is needed to tackle these problems. This paper presents designing a safe vent stack position in the limited space of oil and gas platform with considered the heat radiation produced by the vent stack. The simulation will be done by using flaresim software to predict the heat contour, heat radiation, and gas dispersion. The results proved that the optimal position of vent stack with water shield gives a better heat radiation.
