At the end of 2019, the actual gas production of Rudneftegaz amounted to 2,451 million cubic meters, including 258 million cubic meters of natural gas. The Company’s fields produced 2,193 million cubic meters of associated petroleum gas. At the same time, the level of gas utilization at the end of the year was maintained at the level of 95%, thereby the state requirement aimed at maximizing the negative impact of production on the environment was fully met.
Associated Petroleum Gas (APG) Effective Use Program
Currently, the Company’s task is to maintain the level of rational use of APG, increase energy efficiency of oil production, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This activity will be carried out within the framework of the corporate program developed for 2019-2021. In accordance with it, it is planned to finance a number of large engineering and gas infrastructure facilities.
The development of the gas business is a priority for the Company. In 2019, work continued on the project to modernize and expand the gas infrastructure for oil and gas condensate fields, which allows maintaining the achieved volume of gas production at the Company’s fields. When choosing technologies and equipment, the Company gives priority to technologies and equipment from Russian manufacturers.
