The Annual Report of Transneft for 2019 was preliminary approved by the Board of Directors of Transneft on 19 June 2020 (Minutes No. 13 dated 22 June 2020), and approved by the order No. 413-p of the Federal Agency for State Property Management (Rosimushchestvo) dated 30 September 2020.
In accordance with the Transneft Integrated Policy in Occupational Safety, Energy Efficiency, Industrial and Environmental Safety, the Company’s key principles are prevention and reduction of its negative environmental impact; rational use of natural resources; involvement of employees in improvement of the environmental management system and disclosure of environmental activities. In accordance with the requirements of ISO 14001, the Environmental Management System (hereinafter referred to as the EMS) has been developed and introduced at Transneft and all its subsidiaries; the system is being improved continuously.
In 2019, the Company and its subsidiaries carried out 28 EMS audits, which confirmed its compliance with the requirements of ISO 14001: 2015.
An effective system for monitoring air, water and soil quality is in place at all operating facilities of Transneft. 53 environmental analysis laboratories staffed with highly skilled specialists and outfitted with state-of-the-art analytical equipment ensure that the system works; all the laboratories have been accredited by RusAccreditation. In 2019, about 680 thousand environmental tests were performed, of which 600 thousand were performed by the Company’s laboratories. The tests revealed no violations of permissible limits.
In pursuance of the Federal Laws On Environmental Protection and On Protection of Atmospheric Air and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, in 2019 the Transneft Long-Term Development Programme provided for a 1% reduction in the specific air pollutant emissions. As a result, this indicator went down by 0.01038 kg/t (6.9%) vs the previous year and reached 0.14102 kg/t in the reporting year. The plan for specific air pollutant emissions reduction for 2019 was delivered to the full extent.
The gross emission of air pollutants decreased by 5 thousand tonnes compared to 2018 and amounted to 73.72 thousand tonnes.
Overall, 12.396 thousand tonnes of harmful pollutants were caught and decontaminated during the reporting year, including 12.253 thousand tonnes of pollutants via JAOVRU (jet absorption oil vapour recovery unit) of Transneft Volga Region and VRU (vapour recovery unit) of Transneft Kozmino Port.
Water consumption came to 11.1 million m3 in 2019, wastewater disposal — to 8.8 million m3.
In 2019, 20 wastewater treatment plants were commissioned: 14 water treatment plants for utility water, 5 production and storm wastewater treatment plants and 1 wastewater treatment plant for combined wastewater. 9 of them were manufactured, assembled and upgraded to reach the design performance through the effort of Tyumen Machinery and Repair Plant of Transneft Siberia.
The set of water protection measures taken in 2019 resulted in the reduction of insufficiently treated wastewater discharged to water bodies by 3% year-on-year which reached 106.93 thousand m3.
In accordance with the Transneft Long-Term Development Programme, the discharge of insufficiently treated wastewater discharged to surface water bodies was completely stopped in Q4 2019.
The main volume of greenhouse gas emitted from operating facilities is attributable to stationary fuel combustion in boiler houses to generate thermal energy for own needs. The boiler equipment is manufactured by Transneftemash, a Transneft Upper Volga’s factory. This equipment ensures minimum fuel consumption along with high efficiency, thus achieving the lowest CO2 emissions possible.
In 2019, greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 65.5 thousand tonnes compared to 2018 and amounted to 387.7 thousand tonnes.
Innovative environmental safety and sustainable nature management projects in the pipeline transportation of oil and petroleum products addressing the topics of the Technological Platform were implemented in 2019, including:
