Energy consumption and energy efficiency

The steady growth rates in the Company’s production have resulted in increased consumption of energy resources in recent years. Aware of the human impact of these processes, Gazprom Neft has increased the energy efficiency of its production assets and is working to reduce the consumption of energy resources.

The main goals of Gazprom Neft in energy conservation and efficiency are:

    • to enhance the energy efficiency of the Company's enterprises while maintaining or improving reliability, safety, and performance
    • to mitigate adverse impacts on the environment
    • to reduce the consumption of non-renewable energy resources

The Company adheres to the Gazprom Neft Energy Policy, which serves as the foundation for the Energy Management System (EMS). The EMS meets the requirements of ISO 50001: 2011. The EMS has been gradually introduced at the Company’s facilities.

The Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency Programme serves as the main tool for achieving the Company’s planned energy efficiency indicators. Gazpromneft-Yamal, the Messoyakhaneftegaz JV, Slavneft-Megionneftegaz (Upstream Division), Slavneft-YANOS, and the Omsk Lubricants Plant (Downstream Division) joined the EMS in 2017. The Corporate Centres of the Upstream and Downstream Divisions, Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegaz, Gazpromneft-Muravlenko, Gazpromneft-Khantos, Gazpromneft-Vostok, Gazpromneft-Orenburg, and the Omsk and Moscow Oil Refineries confirmed that the EMS complies with the requirements of the standard.

Cooperation with stakeholders

The Company continued its cooperation with the authorities during the reporting year in an effort to improve energy efficiency.

Experts from the Upstream Division joined a Russian Energy Agency working group that is drafting a national methodology for benchmarking energy efficiency in oil and gas production processes. Representatives of the Downstream Division served as experts on specialized working groups, committees, and commissions of the State Duma and the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation for the drafting and discussion of targeted programs and strategies of the Russian Federation as well as the creation of legislative, regulatory, and technical bases for energy conservation and energy efficiency.
