The Upstream Division’s energy efficiency programme exceeded the targets in 2017. Energy savings amounted to 466 mn kWh (RUB 1.5 billion).
The Division drafted and implemented a programme to improve the reliability and modernize electrical equipment and networks, which included 102 measures, during the reporting year. The measures made it possible to significantly reduce oil shortages during emergency power outages compared with 2016.
The Division’s key energy efficiency indicator – specific electricity consumption for fluid produced – totalled 28.98 kWh/t.The increase in specific electricity consumption in 2017 by 0.07 kWh/t is due to an increase in the proportion of production at assets with a greater depth of oil-containing liquid.
The establishment of the Cross-Functional Commission on Energy Efficiency within the Upstream Division was approved in 2017 and the commission held four meetings. Energy management structures were designated at all current assets. The Division drafted the corporate standards ‘Energy Analysis’ and ‘Energy Planning’.
