PJSC “RussNeft” (owned by SAMAR Industrial and Financial Group) liquidated all sludge pits at the licenses of Khanty-Mansi Branch while implementing of environmental program activities.

The works on liquidation of drilling mud handling facilities at the Branch’s production sites were performed in several stages: 23 sludge pits were liquidated in 2019 (expenses made up 535 mln RUB.), the rest 2 of them were liquidated in 2020.

Nowadays the reclaimed lands are seeded with grass and trees.  No new sludge pits are planned, which fully excludes further accumulation of drilling mud.

RussNeft focuses on compliance with the environmental laws and preventing negative influence of production on environment.
