Energy efficiency

Efficient utilisation of energy resources makes it possible to improve performance, optimise production processes, and reduce the environmental footprint.

The company has incorporated an energy efficiency strategy set out in the Gazprom Neft Energy Policy into its business model. This Policy provides a foundation for an energy management system (EnMS) compliant with the international ISO 50001 standard.

Gazprom Neft annually develops and approves an energy management system development plan. This year, the plan involves expanding the scope of the energy management system, adopting new and updating outdated regulatory documents, providing personnel training, and adopting a new version of the ISO 50001:2018 standard.

In 2019, the energy efficiency and energy conservation initiatives undertaken by the company were focused on improving the performance of power-generation and process equipment, and optimising the utilisation of energy resources and process conditions.

First Gazprom Neft solar power plant

The company has successfully implemented a project to build a solar power plant. The pilot solar power plant has been built at the Omsk Refinery, as there are, on average, 308 sunny days per year in this region. To implement this project, Gazprom Neft has partnered with Hevel Group, a Russian solar energy company that has built Russia's first integrated plant producing solar (photovoltaic) modules. Gazprom Neft signed a cooperation agreement with Hevel Group in June 2019, at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum.

The capacity of the first Gazprom Neft solar power plant totals 1 MW, which can provide up to 1% of total energy consumption at the Omsk Refinery.
