The company supports the implementation of the Paris Agreement and received the highest rating among Russia’s oil companies in the 2020 CDP (former Carbon Disclosure Project) climate rating.
In 2020, the company became a participant of the United Nations Global Compact.
Gazprom Neft continued its work in reducing environmental harm and improving industrial safety throughout 2020.
The company has achieved:
- 9.7% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
- 28% reduction in internal water consumption
- a total of 99.7% of waste was sent for treatment and recycling
- achieved the ‘Target Zero’ objective by recording no industrial incidents or fatalities among its employees
Alexander Dyukov, CEO of Gazprom Neft, said:
- Our new goal in 2021 is a one-third reduction in our carbon footprint by 2030
- To achieve that, we will be making sure gas accounts for an increasing portion of our total production, will continue to modernise our facilities and to improve our energy efficiency as well as ensuring our APG utilisation is kept as high as possible
- We are also developing pilot carbon capture, utilisation and storage projects, which could lead to further reductions in GHG emissions, as well as potentially offering new business opportunities
- An updated strategy, including new objectives in sustainable development, could be put to the Board of Directors before the end of this year
A major component to Gazprom Neft’s field development projects is its bio-resources replenishment programme resulting in a total 45 million precious juvenile fish being released into various waters in 2020.
2020 saw the commissioning of an UGS facility at the Zapadno-Messoyakhsky license block in 2020, part of a unique solution involving APG from the developed Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye field that is reinjected into undeveloped gas strata at the neighbouring Zapadno-Messoyakhskoye field.
