Environmental Safety Program
Following the implementation of environmental safety program activities, environmental performance improved in 2018, including in terms of reducing pollutant emissions into the atmosphere and reducing water consumption from above-ground sources in the electrical energy sector.
The updated Environmental Safety Program for 2019–2021 comprises over 900 measures, with a total cost of around RUB 106.5 billion (RUB 89.1 billion in investments; RUB 17.4 billion in operating expenses). 45 Russian and foreign LUKOIL Group entities participate in the program. Principal funding areas comprise:
- Emergencies and response preparedness (around 40% of the program's budget)
- Achieving a reduction in emissions, discharges of pollutants and water consumption, subject to the requirements for transitioning to the best available technologies in Russia
- Continued work on the rehabilitation of accumulated damage (including in the Russian Arctic Zone)
Environmental protection targets have been set in both qualitative and quantitative terms.
