Victor Sorokin, Head of Operations Management & Industrial Safety Systems Deployment of Gazprom Neft, said:
- In developing the Eastern block of the Orenburg field we have been relying on Russian and international state-of-the-art best practices, both in oil and gas production and drilling, and in environmental monitoring.
- The innovative environmental control system developed by Gazprom Neft allows environmental monitoring round the clock, ensuring full efficiency as well as a high level of environmental and industrial safety in developing one of the most geologically challenging fields in the Volga-Urals region
Data are transmitted to this facility’s control room, and to the Orenburg Oblast Integrated Environmental Monitoring System (accessible to all local people) in real time.
Evgeny Zagrebelny, Director General of Gazpromneft-Orenburg, noted:
- Gazpromneft-Orenburg is a centre for developing new technologies both in drilling, in bringing hard-to-recover reserves into production, and in digital production management, as well as in industrial safety
- We have developed an innovative environmental monitoring system, meeting the latest international standards, and which is allowing us to develop one of the most environmentally challenging fields in the Orenburg region not just efficiently, but in harmony with the local ecosystem
This integrated eco-monitoring system will include more than 900 sensors, and 16 stations, in total, by that time.
