At the end of 2022, the actual gas production of PJSC "RussNeft" amounted to 2,208 million cubic meters, including 295 million cubic meters of natural gas. The Company's fields produced 1,913 million cubic meters of associated petroleum gas. At the same time, the level of gas utilization at the end of the year was maintained at the level of 96.7%, thus the requirement of the state aimed at minimizing the negative impact of production on the environment was fully met.
At present, the Company's objective is to maintain the level of rational use of APG, improve the energy efficiency of oil production, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This activity will be carried out as part of the corporate program developed for 2023-2025. In accordance with it, it is planned to finance a number of large engineering and gas infrastructure facilities.
The development of the gas business is a priority for the Company. In 2022, a decision was made to implement a project to revamp the Stepnovsky oil treatment plant in the Saratov region. It is also planned to carry out a large-scale upgrade and construction of a gas compressor unit with a capacity of more than 50 million cubic meters per year.
