TOBOLSK, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for broader use of promising resources, secondary waste treatment and processing of associated petroleum gas.
In 2012, Russia’s associated petroleum gas output reached 71.8 billion cubic meters, of them 17.1 billion cubic meters were burnt, Putin told a meeting on the development of Russia’s petrochemical complex in a Siberian city of Tobolsk.
Tobolsk-Polymer, a high-tech petrochemical enterprise, launched on Tuesday will process over 5 billion cubic meters of associated petroleum gas, he said.
Putin admitted that it was impossible to lay a pipeline to every plant. “Therefore it is important to create effective logistics and transport schemes convenient for all participants in the market,” he said, urging business not “to ship hydrocarbons abroad, but to process them in Russia.”
