RN-Yuganskneftegaz Plants more than 1.7 Million Trees in 2022

08 December 2022

RN-Yuganskneftegaz, Rosneft Oil Company’s largest oil production asset, has planted more than 1.7 million conifer trees in 2022. The planting area in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District—Yugra has exceeded 460 hectares.

Preservation of the environment is an integral part of the corporate culture of Rosneft. The Company aims to achieve leadership positions in minimising the environmental impact and ensuring the eco-friendliness of its production, implements several comprehensive programmes for the preservation and restoration of natural resources.

RN-Yuganskneftegaz’s key environmental objectives are to preserve biodiversity and reproduce natural resources. Since 2008, the enterprise has been actively supporting the region’s Government in the task of implementing environmental programmes, as well as preserving and restoring the region’s cedar forests.

Tree saplings are grown for RN-Yuganskneftegaz in specialised nurseries from certified seeds stored in particular conditions at forest seed stations, which increases the resistance of trees to adverse climatic factors; the survival rate of planted forests is as high as 95%.

RN-Yuganskneftegaz is improving its approach to environmental management and increasing the scale of its environmental activities. Over the past five years, the amount of land remediated has almost tripled. This year’s remediation rate is set to increase by 25% over the last year’s total.

In 2022, the enterprise released more than 41 million fry of valuable commercial fish species, including 3.9 million fry of the red-listed Siberian sturgeon, into water bodies of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District—Yugra.

Also, in early 2022, RN-Yuganskneftegaz received a commendation from the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District—Yugra Environmental Control and Supervision Service for its “caring attitude towards the preservation of the region’s natural potential”.

Note for Editors:

RN-Yuganskneftegaz LLC is the key asset of Rosneft Oil Company providing about 30% of its total output.
