Energy saving and introduction of new technologies for environmental protection

KTG pursues a policy of energy conservation and energy efficiency. The directions of development of activities in the field of energy efficiency improvement of the group of companies KTG for transportation, distribution and underground storage of gas are defined in the approved Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency Program for 2015-2020.

With successful implementation of the Program's activities, the following will be achieved: reduction of gas consumption for own needs and technological losses (SNIP) by more than 90.5 million m3 and electricity consumption by more than 17.8 million kWh, which will allow to achieve economy Up to 125 thousand tons of equivalent fuel (hereinafter - t.t.).

In accordance with the Program, the main objectives of energy saving policy are:

 

Maximum implementation of the energy saving potential in all types of activities on the basis of state support of energy saving policies and improvement of energy saving management;

Increase of energy efficiency of the group of companies KTG based on the application of innovative technologies and equipment;

Ensuring the reduction of the man-caused impact on the environment.

To realize corporate goals, energy audit has been carried out in the subsidiaries and dependent organizations and Energy Conservation Plans have been formed, but some of the activities require updating and additional activities. Measures on energy saving and energy efficiency improvement for the KTG group of companies to be included in the Road Map of JSC NC "KazMunayGas" are planned and implemented.

Based on the results of the energy audit, a plan of measures for energy saving and energy efficiency improvement for 2015-2019 was developed and approved. In JSC "Intergas Central Asia", LLP "Amangeldy Gas", at the development stage - in LLP "Asian gas pipeline". Also in JSC "Intergas Central Asia", JSC "KazTransGas Aimak" the system of energy management was implemented in accordance with the international standard ISО 50001.

As part of the Resource Conservation Program, the subsidiaries and dependent companies of the KTG are monitoring the consumption of fuel and energy resources (FER) and the implementation of action plans for energy conservation and energy efficiency. In accordance with the "Program for increasing energy efficiency in the group of companies JSC" NWF "Samruk-Kazyna" organized a presentation in JSC NC "KazMunaiGas" report on the consumption of fuel and energy resources CTG.

The volume of consumption of fuel and energy resources for the group of companies KTG in 2016 amounted to 928745 tons of equivalent fuel (tcm) as compared to 2015 (934750 tce).

Potential for energy saving (for approved energy audit activities) for the KTG group of companies for 2015-2019. Is 67588.12 t.t. .. The economy of fuel and energy resources (FER) for the group of companies KTG was in 2016 - 9368.26 tce. (4.993 million kWh, 7,478 thousand cubic meters). We also note that the share of Intergas Central Asia JSC accounts for 70% of energy resources savings, i.e. For the year 2016, the savings amounted to 9300 tce (7436.2 thousand m3, 4875 thousand kWh). This is due to the optimization of the operating modes of electric drive gas compressor units, power supply schemes for the operation mode of compressor stations, including the disconnecting of power transformers for backup power supply of turbo-compressor plants (4.509 million kWh of electric power or 554,607 tons of electric power) and optimizing the loading of compressor stations of the compressor station Gas turbine drive (4,404 million cubic meters of gas or 5,152.68 tons of fuel equivalent).

It should be noted that in connection with the decrease in the volumes of transit of Central Asian gas, there is a decrease in the volumes of energy consumption.

Decree of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated December 29, 2012 No. 1765 established the normative values ​​of the power factor for electrical networks with the voltage class 110 kV - cosφ ≥ 0.89, for networks 6-10 kV - cosφ ≥ 0.92, for 0.4 kV networks ≥0 , 93 (according to GOST 13109-97). According to the results of the measurements carried out in accordance with the energy audit program, the standard values ​​of the power factor (cosφ) in the electrical networks of the SDC meet the requirements of GOST.

As part of the implementation of energy conservation objectives and in order to ensure rational use of electricity in the administrative buildings of subsidiaries and dependent companies, lighting with incandescent lamps has been completely replaced with energy-saving lamps. In production buildings, replacement for energy-saving lamps is made according to the plan of measures for energy saving.

In accordance with the Rules of technical operation of main gas pipelines, the main sources of heat supply for compressor stations of SDCs are autonomous gas boiler houses that provide heat to all production facilities with maximum energy efficiency and high efficiency. At the same time, because of the remoteness of objects from central heating sources, geothermal heat pumps of the type "Waterkotte" are used for heat supply and hot water supply. These plants successfully operate in Intergas Central Asia JSC (UMGL Uralsk -3 units and UMGL Atyrau - 6 units).

At all SDC facilities, the main source of hot water supply (hereinafter - HWS) is electric water heaters ("ARISTON", TERMEX model H150-V) with rated power from 1.0 to 6.0 kW. Calculations of economic efficiency show the advisability of installing combined DHW systems with the use of solar collectors only with electric water heaters (electric scooters) with a single electric power exceeding 6 kW.

In pursuance of the Roadmap for Business Transformation of the KazTransGaz Group of Companies, all subsidiaries of KazTransGas JSC were transferred to the balance sheet of KazTransGaz-Onimderi LLP in order to optimize the business processes performed in providing gas transportation and storage services, as well as cost optimization, Motor transport and
