Oleksii Raptanov, Director of DTEK Oil&Gas Department for production and processing of hydrocarbons, noted, “Environmental friendliness and safety of gas production are one of the most urgent tasks of the gas industry today. Producing gas at any cost is not an option. DTEK Oil&Gas provides a high level of industrial safety at production facilities and minimizes the impact on the environment. For this purpose, the company uses automated fire safety and emergency prevention systems, a sumpless method of gas condensate well drilling, and provides employees with the best personal protective equipment. We produce gas responsibly.”
