Environmental Impacts

Climate change is linked to the production of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, which is one of the most urgent issues of our time. The company undertakes a variety of environmental programs at all stages of industrial activities to lessen the company’s environmental effect.

Environmental Impacts

LLC Tagulskoe is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest project for sustainable development and corporate social responsibility, as well as the Paris Climate Agreement. In the international CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) assessment, an authoritative evaluation of corporations in terms of climate responsibility indicators, LLC Tagulskoe achieved the highest B rating among Russian oil and gas enterprises in 2020. The assessment of greenhouse gas emissions is a critical component of the climate risk management system. To this purpose, LLC Tagulskoe has established a corporate standard based on Russian legal principles and foreign guidelines. Through an initiative to increase the utilization of associated petroleum gas (APG), which is produced alongside oil, the corporation is helping to combat climate change.

When compared to 2018, APG usage in the Novoportovskoye field in the Yamalo-Nenets Krasnoyarsk Territory increased by 23.3 percent in 2019. The activation of gas infrastructure facilities was the reason for this. The field has implemented a one-of-a-kind gas injection plan into the reservoir, which includes an integrated gas treatment unit (GTP), two pads of absorbent gas wells, and a huge gas pipeline network. A 96-megawatt gas turbine power station is also powered by the processed APG.

Cleanup and reclamation

To remove hydrocarbon pollutants from soils and restore disturbed land, LLC Tagulskoe uses innovative soil treatment methods and biotechnologies. The technologies take into account climatic variables and help to reduce expenses and speed up soil reclamation procedures. For example, in Yamal, LLC Tagulskoe developed effective soil remediation technologies based on innovative biodegradation products incorporating microorganisms (hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria that can be used for biological treatment of land at low temperatures).

A plant-based treatment procedure for oil-polluted soils (phytoremediation) is also used frequently at LLC Tagulskoe. Grasse with branching root systems provide an excellent environment for hydrocarbon degradation due to better gas exchange in the soil and a higher amount of biologically active chemicals produced by plant roots. Depending on the natural and climatic conditions, balanced grass mixtures are used, providing reliable biological indicators of soil reclamation.

On territory that has been ravaged for decades, the Group frequently employs reclamation techniques. To achieve this purpose, LLC Tagulskoe Geologorazvedka launched a reclamation campaign at the Tambey trading station in the Yamal Peninsula. Many portions of the shore line have been cleaned of industrial garbage left in Bay since the Soviet era. To be repurposed, scrap metal and rubbish were collected.
