Hydrogen is produced for the company’s in-house refineries, which eliminates commercial risks.
Rosneft has become the 1st Russian company to present a 2035 carbon management plan.
As part of the plan, the company seeks:
- to reduce the emission intensity of its oil & gas production by 30%
- to achieve a methane emission intensity below 0.25%
- and avert greenhouse gas emissions of 20 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent
There are now hydrogen production units at almost all of the company’s refineries.
As part of its 2035 carbon management plan, Rosneft will consider using carbon capture, recovery and storage technologies at its existing hydrogen facilities.
These technologies will significantly reduce emissions and enable the transition to blue hydrogen production.
Rosneft and BP signed a cooperation agreement on carbon management and sustainable development in February 2021.
The agreement includes a joint study of the prospects for new projects using renewable energy sources as well as CO2 capture, recovery and storage technologies.
