Measures taken by Gazprom Neft while actively exploring and developing new fields enabled it to avoid a year-on-year increase in air pollutant emissions. Emissions are caused mainly by APG flaring. Therefore, an increase in the APG utilisation rate is a key driver of emission reduction.
In order to reduce pollutant emissions, Gazprom Neft is also implementing a large-scale programme to upgrade and overhaul its refining assets, and other environmental initiatives covering all of its operations. Gazprom Neft is participating in the federal 'Clean Air' project, which is aimed at reducing emissions in large industrial cities, including Omsk, where company assets are located.
