The Saratov Oil Refinery (a member of the TNK-BP Group of Companies) has launched a project to reconstruct its purification facilities. Between now and 2016, TNK-BP will spend around $40 million on the project.

TNK-BP is implementing a comprehensive programme to reduce its environmental footprint at the Saratov Oil Refinery - one of its biggest, with a throughput of over 6 million tonnes per annum. The rail loading rack at the Uvek oil depot is currently undergoing reconstruction. Modernization of the treatment facilities will help to achieve a high level of purification of waste water, which can then be re-used for the refinery’s needs. Modernization will also lead to a substantial cut in the refinery’s hazardous atmospheric emissions.

Elena Kompasenko, TNK-BP Vice President, Health, Safety and Environment, stresses: “Meeting strict international norms and standards is a mandatory requirement of TNK-BP’s activities, not only in oil production, but in the refining sector as well. This project will help to ensure a high quality of purification of industrial waste water and to minimize the Saratov Oil Refinery’s environmental impact.”
