Abstract

The Paris Agreement signed in 2016 has promoted activities related to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Following the adoption of Russian and international regulations designed to monitor and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, all Russian oil and gas companies are currently putting an increased focus on this issue.

The paper analyzes the current trends and future activities of the leading Russian oil and gas companies aimed at decarbonization and reduction of carbon footprint. Carbon emissions of oil and gas companies can be cut primarily through implementation of new technologies with lower energy intensity and carbon footprint, application of renewable energy sources (including those in combination with energy storage) for power supply, industrial waste recycling (including treatment of greenhouse gases resulting from technological processes).

Key words:

decarbonization, carbon footprint, oil and gas companies
