Water resource management
The company views water stewardship, effective wastewater treatment and preventing the contamination of natural water bodies with oil or petroleum products as its priorities.
Gazprom Neft’s water resources management projects aim to minimise water consumption, mitigate environmental risks and improve the ecological condition of water bodies and adjacent lands.
Internal water consumption decreased, mainly due to the fact that less water was produced from the Cenomanian strata and other groundwaters following a higher water cut in oil produced, coupled with an optimisation of the system for maintaining formation pressure at company fields.
Building Biosphere biological treatment facilities at the Moscow and Omsk Refineries ranks among the company’s key water management projects. Gazprom Neft’s total investment in these projects currently stands at more than ₽28 billion.
