Waste management

Gazprom Neft is developing an industrial waste management system that aims to optimize waste flows, mitigate the environmental impact, reduce the economic cost of waste generation, and maximize the possible use of waste.

In 2017, the subsidiaries of the Upstream Division introduced a concept for the utilization of drilling waste in order to mitigate environmental risks and unify waste management requirements. The concept takes into account the infrastructure of the fields under development, the existing technologies for neutralizing drilling waste, key performance indicators, well construction methods, and the injection of waste into the reservoir.
