Dear Sirs!

CREON Energy has the pleasure of inviting you to the Eighth International «Associated Petroleum Gas 2017» Conference. The Conference is part of Rational Approach Project, a series of events devoted to environmental issues and run by CREON Group together with WWF. The importance of environment-related conferences increases in 2017 as it has been declared the Year of Ecology in Russia.

Venue: Baltschug Kempinski Hotel Moscow

The utilization of APG started to be considered as a serious challenge in Russia about a decade ago. This was caused by almost twofold growth in its production; through APG flaring at oilfields, about $ 3.5-4.5 billion had been wasted annually.

Over the past several years though, the problem of APG utilization has won particular attention of the Government, and the change benefited both the industry and the environment. Affected by stimuli from the authorities, the oil E&P companies started to invest in processing of APG, and the utilization rate reached 88.2% in 2015, 13-14% higher than 10 years ago.

With oil companies actively addressing the APG utilization issue, in September 2016 the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation drafted amendments to the Decree that regulates fines for exceeding APG flaring limits. According to the experts, the target flaring levels can be achieved only if the Government takes further regulatory steps, taking into consideration the continued growth of APG production. One of such steps is lifting access restrictions for all APG producers to the Gazprom-owned pipeline transportation system.

The following topics will be discussed at «Associated Petroleum Gas 2017» Conference:

  • Practice of APG use and processing
  • Extra support for small oilfields in achieving target levels of APG flaring
  • New projects and solutions for effective APG use
  • Experience in applying APG utilization technologies in Russia and abroad
  • Synergy effect from joint efforts by oil, gas processing and power generation companies for improving energy efficiency and APG utilization
  • System design and engineering for APG collection and processing units
  • Development of transport infrastructure

We bring together all the interested market participants at our platform and will be delighted to welcome you among the delegates of the International «APG 2017» Conference.
