In exploring an alternative solution, this study details Kenya’s gas-flaring legislation; the Petroleum Act and the Model Product Sharing Contract, and the extent of their implementation, while analysing the impact they have on the environment and details how litigation can be used as a tool to combat gas flaring, juxtaposing the concept of the rule of law.
