LUKOIL presented its environmental expertise with respect to Baltic fields development

Moscow, March 26 - Neftegaz.RU. LUKOIL presented the environmental practices it engages in when developing offshore fields at the XXI Baltic Sea Day International Forum, which is held by Russian Ministry of Natural Resources & Environment and HELCOM.
It is one of the most respected environmental platforms and is overseen by the Marine Board under the Russian Government.
The forum is the largest event of its kind in the Baltic Sea region.

The presentation touched upon the «zero discharge» technology that had 1st been employed by LUKOIL in the Baltic Sea.
Since then, this principle has become standard for all offshore projects of the company.

LUKOIL has been operating in the region since 2004, when the development of the D6 (Kravtsovskoye) and D41 fields got underway.
The latter is where LUKOIL drilled nearly 8 km long wells, thus setting the record for the fields in the Baltic Sea.
The company is also currently preparing to start development of the D33 field.

The new project is set to employ a computer-assisted control and management system for all main and auxiliary processes, as well as modern blowout prevention equipment.
The development design also does not allow for offshore burning of oil-associated gas and power generation.
Furthermore, the project envisages use of environmentally friendly vessels, construction machinery, and internal combustion engines, as well as fish protection systems.

LUKOIL conducts constant environmental monitoring and routine oil spill response drills for the personnel, adheres to high environmental standards at its marine projects.
The company develops fields in theNorth Caspian and engages in offshore projects abroad, namely in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Norway, and West African states.
