The officials of the Water Resources Complex Development Center, Federal State Budgetary Institution (FGBU “Tsentr Razvitiya VHK”), went to Antipinsky Oil Refinery CJSC on an inspection trip. The purpose of the trip was to inspect the proper investment of funds within the framework of the implementation of the federal targeted program, “Development of Water Resources Complex of the Russian Federation in 2012 – 2020.” The money to the tune of 129,389,000 rubles were provided for subsidizing interest rates on credits extended for the construction of water treatment facilities of the third phase of the refinery. “The complex of water treatment facilities in question consists of the preliminary treatment block, physical-chemical treatment block, biological treatment block, advanced wastewater treatment block, and dehydration block of trapped oil products, moist residues, and excess sludge; what will make it possible to provide for wastewater treatment to the extent enabling the refinery to reuse purified effluents (up to 60%) and to discharge the water which fully meets all established ratios to the Tura River,” Irina Stepanenko, Head of Subsidies and Extra-Budgetary Resources Department of the Water Resources Complex Development Center, Federal State Budgetary Institution, is quoted as saying.
According to professionals of Antipinsky Oil Refinery, when the third phase of Antipinsky Oil Refinery CJSC is commissioned there will be no need to build additional underground water intake structures, which fact will make it possible to reduce the withdrawal of natural water in the volume exceeding 2 million cubic meters per year. Besides, due to the latest water treatment technologies the portion of water which is to return to the Tura River will be considerably cleaner than the water in the river itself at the time of its intake. Thus, for example, the concentration of suspended substances in the river accounts for 42.8 mg/dm3, and at the time of discharge we observe no more than 6 mg/dm3, as for the oil products in the river they account for 0.07 mg/dm3, and at the time of discharge they make up 0.05 mg/dm3.
“Pre-commissioning works at the new wastewater treatment facilities are planned to be completed before the year is out,” Dmitry Chernov, Chief of the Water Supply and Water Discharge Workshop is quoted as saying.
