RN-Krasnodarneftegaz Increases the Level of Rational Use of Associated Petroleum Gas up to 99%

14 March 2023

RN-Krasnodarneftegaz (part of Rosneft's oil and gas production complex) increased the level of utilization of APG by 1.5% to 98.7% in 2022, which is one of the best indicators in the industry.

Most of the gas produced - over 900 million cubic meters - was sent to the Unified Gas Supply System and was also supplied to consumers in the Krasnodar Territory.

It was possible to increase the APG utilization rate thanks to Rosneft's large-scale target gas program involving the construction of a well-developed infrastructure. Over the years, eight major facilities of the gas gathering and treatment system were commissioned at four groups of fields: Khankovskaya booster pump station, Troitsk compressor station, Gazelan gas treatment unit, Troitsk automated group metering unit, Anastasievsky gas metering station, mobile gas supply units.

The increase in the level of APG utilization in 2022 was also influenced by a reduction in the time required for maintenance and repair work on the collection, compression, preparation and transport of products.

In addition, RN-Krasnodarneftegaz is a leader in the implementation of renewable energy sources. The company uses wind turbines with integrated solar panels as energy sources at its production facilities at four major fields. The optimum geographical conditions of the fields - a large number of windy and sunny days - allow the use of hybrid units with high efficiency. More than 8,000 kWh was saved in 2022.

Note for Editors:

RN-Krasnodarneftegaz LLC, a subsidiary of Rosneft Oil Company, is one of the oldest oil and gas enterprises engaged in hydrocarbon development in 10 districts of Krasnodar Region.
