Oil and Ecology. Environmental Contamination

According to the state statistical reporting (the 2TP-air form), gaseous and liquid substances, specifically non-methane volatile organic compounds, methane, nitrogen, carbon, and sulfur compounds represent the major part of emissions ( 95%) by stationary contamination sources (gas compressor units, tank batteries, boiler-houses, etc.)

Emissions of contaminating substances in process of oil, gas and condensate production was 46,800 tons in 2005. Analysis shows that emissions will be growing by 3,000 tons every year, and in 2010 may grow up to 68,000 tons if no specific measures are taken to upgrade and repair equipment and oil, gas and condensate production increase insignificantly.

Emissions related to oil transport totaled 1,900 tons in 2005. Increased oil transport in 2010-2030 will not make emissions of contaminating substances grow due to a package of innovation measures, as estimates show.
