For the third consecutive year, the number of oil and petroleum product spills in LUKOIL Group entities declined as a result of systemic measures carried out to improve the reliability of pipeline transport. In 2018 this indicator declined significantly compared to 2017. In four cases, contractors and third parties (unauthorized tappings) were responsible for accidents with environmental consequences.
The Company's oil spill response system is able to localize spills quickly, eliminate the damage caused by accidents, and rehabilitate contaminated areas.
|Volume of oil and oil products spilled in accidents, thousand tons||0.26||0.22||0.032|
|Specific coefficient of spills (kg of spilled oil and oil products per thousand tons of extracted oil and gas condensate)||3.1||2.7||0.4|
Notes. The specifc coefcient is calculated based on the volume of oil and gas condensate production in Russia (net of the share in related organizations).
