Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery implementing environmental project of federal significance

The Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery has begun preparations for the construction of a closed waste treatment facility. This new environmental initiative at the Omsk Refinery, by decree of the Government of the Russian Federation, forms part of the federal plan for a series of activities under the auspices of Russia’s Year of Ecology. The project is an adjunct to the wider programme for the modernisation of Gazprom Neft’s refining assets, one of the key priorities of which is the consistent reduction of environmental impacts. Gazprom Neft’s investment in the construction of new treatment facilities is currently in the order of RUB17 billion.

The new treatment facility will include a multistage water treatment system involving mechanical, physical—chemical and biological treatments, as well as carbon filtration and ultra-violet disinfection. The technological solutions built into the multi-stage treatment system will allow a 17-fold reduction in the total floor space allocated to treatment facilities at the Omsk Refinery, while simultaneously increasing production by 20 percent. The use of cutting-edge technologies will reduce impacts on local sewage systems, by ensuring 70 percent of water is returned to the enterprise’s production cycle.

The project has been developed by the Russian design institute, Omskneftekhimproject. The new treatment facilities are expected to be commissioned in 2019.
