SUEZ and Rosneft sign strategic cooperation agreement

Today at the 2018 edition of the St Petersburg International Economic Forum, SUEZ’s CEO, Jean-Louis Chaussade, and Vice President of Rosneft Andrey Shishkin strengthened their working relationship with the signing of a Strategic Cooperation Agreement (SCA). The agreement will further technology development and implementation of water, wastewater and waste programs at Rosneft refinery and petrochemical sites.

SUEZ will provide technologies and solutions with pilot testing as needed. Areas of focus include wastewater pre-treatment, biological wastewater treatment, desalination for reuse, water purification by evaporation and various treatment programs for cooling water systems. SUEZ will also expand its existing technical advisory services currently deployed at one of Rosneft’s sites to other sites owned and operated by Rosneft.

“Effectiveness and environmental safety of the oil and gas production is only possible if the latest technologies are used. Rosneft highly prioritizes innovative development in its operations and actively uses the latest digital technologies in all areas of the company's activities. We are pleased that the experience and competencies of SUEZ, the leading company in the field of environmental technology development, are being used at Rosneft's facilities", said Andrey Shishkin, Vice President of PJSC “Oil Company “Rosneft”, commenting on the signing of the agreement.

The new agreement comes at the heels of an already existing and positive working relationship between SUEZ and Rosneft, which started more than a decade ago. Since that time SUEZ supplied its MBR technology and cooling water treatment services to multiple Rosneft refineries. In January 2018, Rosneft and SUEZ put into operation a biological wastewater treatment plant at Rosneft’s Bashneft-Ufaneftekhim facility, which will treat up to 84,000 cubic meters of wastewater per day using SUEZ industrial wastewater treatment technology. The equipment is being serviced by SUEZ as part of a 15-year agreement.
