Bashneft (an enterprise of Rosneft Oil Company) has reduced its carbon monoxide (CO) emissions from furnaces at the Ufa refining complex, by five times at the selective oil treatment unit and by 17 times at the hydrotreatment unit. Such a multiple reduction in the impact on atmospheric air was achieved through a set of measures implemented on the furnaces during the overhaul. Furthermore, fuel costs will drop by 16.5 million roubles a year.
Environment protection is an integral part of the Rosneft 2022 Strategy. The Company aims to achieve leadership positions in minimizing the environmental impact and ensuring the eco-friendliness of its production.
The overhaul included improved thermal insulation and optimised adjustment of the fuel supply process controls. Following tests and optimisation of the combustion regime at the Bashneft-Novoil selective oil treatment facility, furnace efficiency increased by more than 11% on average, with fuel gas savings of up to 6%. The planned annual savings will be nearly 1,200 tonnes of fuel equivalent.
Note for Editors:
