3 million m² of land remediated and ready to be brought back into use.
To date, three million square metres of land has been remediated and ready to be brought back into use. Following a comprehensive environmental baseline survey of all Rumaila production sites, 80 oil and produced-water pits and sites were identified as having hydrocarbon contamination. We are now removing these old contaminated pits and creating new properly lined engineered pits to capture the oil without contaminating the land; between 2013 and 2018, over four million barrels of oil have been recovered for export from oil pits from sites across Rumaila.
In 2018, 2,360 tonnes of waste was safely incinerated and 474 bales of plastic bottles, 33 bales of aluminium cans and 27 bales of tin cans and 100 cubic metres of glass were separated for future recycling.
