Water consumption sources

In the water withdrawal structure of the Russian entities of LUKOIL Group, around 85% of the volume of withdrawn water is made up of surface and underground sources. Water withdrawal is insignificant and is carried out mainly at the basins of the Ob, Pechora, Volga, Don, and Kuban rivers, in accordance with respective permits and within prescribed quotas. Risks of water deficits are recorded Data from the Report of the Climatic Center of the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring of the Russian Federation "Report on Climatic Risks on the Territory of the Russian Federation", with respect to the Don and the Kuban basins, especially on the territory of the Krasnodar Territory, which has limited water resources.

Water consumption from surface natural sources in 2018 compared to 2017 fell by 5 %

Notes. 1) The water consumption calculation method was updated in 2018: accounting for water used in intragroup transfers (between LUKOIL Group entities) was eliminated. The difference in “Water withdrawal” indicators for 2017 and 2018 results from eliminating the volume of intragroup water transfers (56 million cubic meters). 2) The data provided for 2018 for foreign entities do not include ISAB S.r.l. 3) The value presented in the “Water withdrawal from other sources (centralized water supply systems, etc.)” line item is provided for 2018 net of intragroup exchanges. 4) Some indicators for 2016 and 2017 are not available, as the recommendations on their disclosure were introduced by GRI standards from 2018.
