Waste Management

One of the most pressing problems of our time – climate change – is associated with the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. To reduce the impact on the environment, the company implements a set of environmental programs at all levels of production activities.

Waste Management

JSC Gazpromneft MZSM is guided in its waste management activities by Moscow region laws and the Constitution, the President of the Moscow region’s decrees and resolutions, the Cabinet of Ministers of the Moscow region’s decisions and resolutions, other normative legal acts, international agreements to which they are a party, agreements on exploration and development of oil and gas ratified by Moscow region laws, and the approval of the “Waste management Plan” (WMP).

Measurements of dangerous gases emitted into the environment by vehicles are being carried out in the balance of departments and companies of JSC Gazpromneft MZSM, with norms in the Moscow region being compared. It is possible to measure CO, HC, NOX, and CO2 gases with great precision with these gas analyzers. Final reports are created and sent to businesses in order to take appropriate steps after the gases (CH, CO, and smoke) emitted into the atmosphere by cars and specific machines are compared to standard criteria.

Work on collecting, sorting, transportation, usage, and burying of wastes, which are components of these processes, is carried out in accordance with the “Waste Management Plan” in order to ensure that the system established to manage wastes created by JSC Gazpromneft MZSM operates efficiently. Production wastes and drilling muck are delivered to the Environmental Department’s Waste Centre, as specified in the WMP.

With a view to ensuring for the Waste Centre to function in conformity with more contemporary requirements, a Feasibility Study document on the Reconstruction of the Waste Centre project within the contract made between JSC Gazpromneft MZSM based on the grant allocated by the RF Trade and Development Agency (TDA) has been developed.

The Vargashinsky field, which is being developed by JSC Gazpromneft MZSM in the Moscow region, is getting ready to launch an integrated gas treatment plant (GTP) (within the Arctic Circle). This GTP is intended for the processing of associated petroleum gas (APG) for re-injection into subterranean strata. The facility is expected to use more than 95 percent of the field’s APG at full capacity. The gas treatment unit, which consists of four 32 MW gas compressor units, two gas disposal well clusters, and a vast gas pipeline network, is currently part of the process flow for gas re-injection. A dehydration unit and an automated control room are also part of the complex, enabling for round-the-clock monitoring of the equipment’s status and working conditions.
