Energy efficiency

KPO Energy Policy

To ensure the growing demand for energy while making the transition to low-carbon technologies is one of the challenges facing the global community.

Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact and effectively use energy resources in the main production and other ancillary processes. The implementation of measures to improve energy efficiency contributes to achievement of the goal.

Energy management system

In 2019, KPO conducted surveillance audit for compliance with ISO 50001:2011 «Energy management systems» standard requirements. The audit confirmed KPO’s compliance with the requirements of this standard. The ISO 50001 certificate is valid until the next certification audit in September 2020.

ISO certification contributes to enhancement of the KPO business reputationS as a reliable partner of the Republic of Qazaqstan that takes appropriate action to meet both regulatory requirements and international standards.

Energy consumption

In 2019, the energy consumption totalled 1,021,957 tonnes of coal equivalent compared to 1,040,603 tonnes of coal equivalent in 2018.
Table below shows the energy consumption volumes broken down by energy type.

In 2019, the energy consumption was somewhat lower than in 2018 due to the major turnaround conducted.
In 2019, KPO energy intensity indicator was 1.12 GJ/tonnes of hydrocarbons, which was below the average energy intensity indicator of the companies that submit their reports to the IOGP (1.50).

Energy saving activities

Pursuant to the approved KPO's Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency Improvement Action Plan, the following actions were taken in 2019:

  • The activities on replacement of traditional lamps with LEDs bulbs at production and ancillary facilities were continued. In 2019, 4,785 lamps were replaced at Company`s facilities. Estimated economy of energy consumption from the traditional lamps replacement was about 383,680 KW/h.
  • The works on improvement of fuel gas accounting including early works on the metering device installation were conducted.
