Progress on the Program to Increase APG Utilization Rates

In 2018, Rosneft continued with its efforts to increase the utilization rate of associated petroleum gas (APG). At the year-end, this parameter amounted to 89.7% excluding the fields at early stages of development. Including the new fields and fields at early stages of development, APG utilization rate amounted to 84.4%.

In 2018, 19 APG utilization facilities were built, including:

  • complex of facilities for gas injection into the formation of the Verkhnechonskoye field;
  • power generation facility: 36 MW gas turbine electric power plant of the Kondinskoye field of JSC Kondaneft;
  • gas treatment and utilization facilities: APG treatment unit of Meteli booster pumping station operated by Bashneft-Dobycha, Ukrainskaya small-size gas treatment unit operated by RN-Krasnodarneftegaz, gas air cooling unit of Tananykskaya oil treatment unit, preheating units at Rodnikovskaya, Tarkhanskaya, and Savrushinskaya initial water separation units operated by Orenburgneft;
  • gas transportation infrastructure facilities: compressor stations at booster pumping stations 2 and 3 of North Varyoganskoye field operated by Varyoganneftegaz, compressor station of oil processing and pumping shop 5, gas collection, treatment, and transportation shop 3 of the Pravdinskoye field operated by RN-Yuganskneftegaz, gas pipeline connecting booster pumping station 5 and booster pumping station of Talinskaya area of the Krasnoleninskoye field operated by RN-Nyaganneftegaz, gas pipeline connecting the oil gathering facility Keremetovo and the oil gathering facility Shushnur operated by Bashneft-Dobycha.
