In 2015, a Paris Climate Agreement was signed, one of the main goals of which is to Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being at all ages. To achieve this goal, the greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced down to 70 % of the 1990 level. The Agreement has also been signed by the Russian Federation, which ranks third in terms of emissions out of 192 parties to the agreement.
At the St. Petersburg Economic Forum in 2022, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin said: We will generally develop clean technologies in order to achieve the goals set for the environmental modernization of enterprises and to reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere, especially in large industrial centers. We will also continue to work within closed-loop economy projects as well as climate conservation and green projects.
Taking into account the global trends and long-term plans of the Russian Federation, NK Rosneft PJSC has set a goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. This will be achieved through emissions reduction measures, low-carbon generation, the development of energy-saving technologies, carbon capture and storage technologies, utilization of natural absorption potential, as well as a number of other technologies.
In terms of the methods of handling CO2 emissions, oil companies distinguish two promising areas: Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies which cover separating carbon dioxide from other gases in industrial emissions (usually at gas turbine power plants or APG flares) followed by compression and transportation to an isolated place for long-term storage, and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) technologies which also cover the separation of carbon dioxide from other gases, but for further useful utilization, in particular, to enhance oil recovery (EOR). Currently, a feasibility study on the application of CCS/CCUS technologies in the pilot subsurface areas of NK Rosneft PJSC has been launched.
In the CCS domain, criteria have been formed to organize the storage of CO2 in natural reservoirs. The geological targets promising for long-term storage are being searched and ranked within the pilot sites. Porous aquifers suitable for long-term storage of carbon dioxide, requiring only the construction of wells and organization of injection process, are being analyzed as the main locations. The analysis of geological data allowed to develop the basic principles of selecting the storage targets: the presence of a trap, a shale seal, a sufficient volume of pores and permeabilities sufficient for injection. The analysis involved tools similar to those used to search for oil traps: seismic studies, petrophysical, hydrogeological and geomechanical data. The final stage of the work is geological modeling and flow simulation which allows us to determine with high accuracy the potential of storing carbon dioxide in porous aquifers, as well as to assess the gas migration potential in the longer term.
In the CCUS domain, the EOR performance of injecting carbon dioxide into an oil reservoir is being assessed. To select the technology, a sequence of actions has been developed with the following stages: build an Equation of State (EOS) to determine the minimum miscibility pressure (MMP), select reservoirs suitable for miscible conditions, run laboratory studies on fluid and core samples, build composite dynamic models to evaluate process parameters, and select process equipment for injection. The computations will form the basis for a feasibility study of CO2 injection performance and will allow to determine the geological criteria of applicability and to develop standard solutions for process equipment.

Materials and methods
Approaches have been formed to justify the choice and evaluation of candidate reservoirs for CO2 storage.

The paper considers the problems that arise when estimating the cost of logging operations for the preparatory cycle of construction and reconstruction of oil and gas facilities in the Russian Federation (RF). First, the system of forest accounting in the Russian Federation is in crisis and is inefficient. When performing forest taxation, modern high-performance, accurate and cost-effective remote methods of taxation should be used. Secondly, the methodological system for pricing construction works does not have a single procedure for determining the volume of logging operations for their qualitative assessment, as close as possible to the actual work performed. Third, there are a number of inconsistencies in the current budget standards and legislation in the Russian Federation. Also, the Federal register of estimated standards does not contain the necessary data for evaluating certain types of logging operations.

Materials and methods

Analysis of a modern state of asphaltene, resin, parrafin substances depositions formation and recycling problem in petroleum industry

Valiev Dinar Z., Kemalov Alim F., Kemalov Ruslan A.


In this paper, possible methods for the prevention and disposal of waste sediments of asphaltene, resin and paraffin substances (ARP-S) are systematized. The practical importance of the rational use of the existing methods for prevention of ARP-S sediments occurrence, as well as the recycling methods are represented. The practical significance is considered based on the examples of Russian and foreign enterprises. The formation of ARP-S sediments is possible during wells drilling, as well as during operation, well workover and cleaning of drainage tanks. This type of waste is mostly paraffinic, thats why mechanical method of prevention (pipeline scraper) is adopted. This paper summarizes the existing technologies for recycling and processing of sludges using them as alternative energy sources. The problem of their utilization is now solved by processing in the existing scheme for the preparation of commercial oil. Full utilization of liquid petroleum wastes, even at a single enterprise, provides a reduction in the total amount of petroleum wastes by more than 70% and the return of marketable oil to resource turnover. The paper presents the results of calculations of wastes generation during oilfield construction and operation. Hazardous wastes were considered as environmentally dangerous according to classification. Promising areas of ARP-S sediments processing are presented. 

Forecasting the total volume of flame gas burning in the oil producing territory

Kochergin Gleb A., Kupriyanov Matvey A., Polishchuk Jury M.


The analysis of the time series of quarterly volumes of flaring of associated petroleum gas (APG) in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area (KhMAA) for the period of 2012-2016 was carried out. It is established that the trend of reducing the volume of combustible gas for a specified period is described by an exponential equation. It is shown that, along with the exponential trend, cyclical seasonal variations in the volume of the combusted gas are observed. A model is proposed for predicting the volume of gas being combusted as a sum of two terms, the first of which is represented by the equation of the exponential trend, and the second term is intended to take into account seasonal fluctuations in gas flaring volumes. An example of a forecast of APG flaring volumes for the period 2017-2020 is given for the territory of the KhMAA.
