GPP in 2012, will take on the generation of 4.6 million m3 of associated gas, which will increase to 5% of the current level of utilization of associated petroleum gas at AVRDC, which continues actively drilling new wells.
TNK-BP to invest in the creation of its own generation facilities (including GPP) on the East Uvate about 7 billion rubles, which will bring the level of APG utilization to 95% in 2014.
"The launch of the new facility on Uvate own generation — it is the next step in the implementation of our strategy to increase the efficiency of energy assets — said the executive vice president of strategy and business development at TNK-BP Slobodin. — We will continue to work actively in this direction in the new projects, as well as in mature fields.
