Orenburgneft's Green Investment Exceeds RUB 9 Bln in 5 Years

19 May 2022

Environmental protection and renovation investments by Orenburgneft (part of Rosneft) exceeded RUB 9 bln in 2017-2021. The enterprise's major environmental projects include improving pipeline reliability, continuous environmental monitoring, rational use of associated gas and efficient water management. Orenburgneft is also implementing comprehensive land reclamation and biodiversity conservation programmes in its operating regions.

High environmental performance standards and the development of environmental technologies are a key element of Rosneft's strategy. The Company aims to achieve leadership positions in minimizing the environmental impact and ensuring the eco-friendliness of its production.

Orenburgneft's environmental staff monitors the license areas on a daily basis, including using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). In 2021 alone, more than 36% of the field pipelines were diagnosed and examined. Over five years, more than RUB 3.7 bln has been spent to improve the reliability of pipelines.

Since 2011, the enterprise has been implementing a programme to improve the rational use of associated petroleum gas, as part of which gas pipelines and gas infrastructure facilities have been built. The Pokrovskaya integrated gas treatment facility with a capacity of 450 mln m3 per year and the second phase of the Zaikinskoye gas processing plant, with a capacity of 1.1 bln m3 per year are the most significant. The target of 95% utilisation of associated petroleum gas in the field was exceeded due to the technical upgrade of the gas compression unit at the Olkhovskaya BPPS.

Orenburgneft is successfully implementing an energy saving and efficiency programme. The enterprise's substations are equipped with automated control, data collection and transmission systems that allow remote control of the main technical parameters of the electricity network.

More than 1,300 activities were performed in 2021, which resulted in saving more than 52 million kWh of electricity. The economic effect of the programme was RUB 176 mln.

The enterprise's employees promote environmental culture - they give environmental lessons in the city's schools and participate in environmental campaigns such as Eco-Territory, Clean Coast, Green Spring and others.
