Key performance indicators (KPIs) at Gazprom Neft’s Omsk Refinery have been assessed by specialists from Solomon Associated — a world leader in fuel and energy industry benchmarking — with international analysts confirming the strong performance of energy-saving technologies deployed throughout the plant. The modernisation of production facilities at the Omsk Refinery in 2022 has resulted in energy efficiency improving by 27%. Resources savings of this kind form part of initiatives aimed at reducing environmental impacts from production. Optimising energy consumption at the Omsk Refinery is being undertaken as part of the plant’s environmentally friendly upgrading, involving investments of more than ?400 billion.

Cutting-edge technological solutions are allowing the Omsk Refinery to consistently improve energy efficiency and reduce consumption of key energy resources such as heat, fuel and electricity. Electricity savings at the Omsk Refinery in 2021 reached more than 1,000 KWh — the average annual consumption of 500 apartments. Using renewable energy sources is further reducing the plant’s environmental impacts. The region’s first solar-powered (1 MW-capacity) electricity station has been in operation at the Omsk Refinery since 2019, with energy produced by this station being used to cover all electricity used by the plants administration buildings. Development of green technologies remains ongoing — the plant is now implementing a project to expand this solar-power plant to 20 MW.

A further area of the plant’s work in environmental protection involves careful management of water consumption. The Omsk Refinery is continuing its construction of a new “Biosphere” water treatment facility, which will allow the plant to cut its river-water consumption by six cubic metres per year — “closed-loop” operation meaning more than 70% of treated water can be reused in production processes. The Biosphere is a leading environmental protection project in the region and one of nine such projects at the Omsk Refinery forming part of the federal “Clean Air” programme. This new complex can treat water to up to 100% purity, while leak-proof sealing of all processes avoids any environmental impacts.
