RN-Nyaganneftegaz Allocates 1.7 Billion Roubles to Environmental Projects in 2020

07 April 2021

RN-Nyaganneftegaz, an enterprise of Rosneft oil production complex, invested more than 1.7 billion roubles in environmental protection and remediation measures in 2020. The funds are earmarked for the gas programme, improving pipeline reliability, land reclamation and increasing the efficiency of industrial waste management.

Preservation of the environment is an integral part of the corporate culture and business operations of Rosneft. The Company aims to achieve leadership positions in minimizing the environmental impact and ensuring the eco-friendliness of its production.

For the disposal of drilling waste, the enterprise uses modern technologies that have passed the state environmental examination. Secondary products obtained in the recycling process are used for technological needs. Over two years, Nyaganneftegaz has recycled about 550,000 tonnes of production waste and reclaimed more than 80 hectares of land. Land reclamation is carried out using modern technology at all stages with agrotechnical and phytomeliorative methods used to restore the soil cover.

As a result of the gas programme, Nyaganneftegaz has ensured a 95% level of APG utilisation.

Nyaganneftegaz has reduced the failure rate of the transport system by 12.2% thanks to the implementation of the pipeline reliability improvement programme in 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. More than 60 kilometres of field pipelines have been replaced.

In 2020, the enterprise’s employees planted more than 280,000 tree seedlings as part of a reforestation programme. Siberian cedar pine and common pine are planted on an area of 70 hectares in the Oktyabrsky district of Ugra. The enterprise has made a significant contribution to the conservation and restoration of cedar forests in the autonomous area and has been awarded the honorary title of ‘Keeper of the Cedar Forests of Ugra’. Since 2010, Nyaganneftegaz has planted over 1.5 million seedlings across more than 370 hectares of land.
