Green Seismic know-how developed by Gazprom Neft (which makes it attainable to minimise environmental impacts throughout geological prospecting) has been awarded the V.I. Vernadsky National Ecological Prize.
The firm’s “Green Seismic” and “Green Seismic 2.zero” initiatives gained the “Science for Ecology” nomination, each having been developed and applied by the Gazprom Neft Science and Technology Centre along with Gazpromneft-GEO. Green Seismic is an progressive seismic know-how involving using wi-fi recording gear. It is put in utilizing compact all-terrain autos, avoiding the necessity to create forest clearings — which, hitherto, may very well be as a lot as 5 metres huge.
This progressive and environmentally-friendly strategy to seismic surveying preserves forests. Not having to make use of heavy-machinery fleets considerably reduces gas and lubricant consumption, reduces stress on earth and soil, and improves industrial security.
This know-how is extensively used all through the corporate in investigating closely forested license blocks within the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, and the Tomsk Oblast. The Green Seismic undertaking has made it attainable to save lots of greater than four.5 million bushes since its launch.
The National Ecology Prize was established by the V.I. Vernadsky Non-Governmental
Yuri Masalkin Director for Geological Prospecting and Resource Base Development, Gazprom Neft and Director General, Gazpromneft-GEO stated: “Green Seismic know-how is the benchmark in geological prospecting at the moment. Not solely does it enable most effectivity and accuracy in looking for hydrocarbons, it additionally means we will implement initiatives whereas caring for the surroundings. Green Seismic is now used all through the important thing areas for Gazprom Neft’s operations — and the extent of its software is barely going to develop, yearly.”
Based in Saint Petersburg, Gazprom Neft, is the third largest oil producer in Russia and ranked third in line with refining throughput. It is a subsidiary of Gazprom, which owns about 96% of its shares.
