On November 27, the meeting of Coordination Board on the issues of environmental protection, social responsibility and transparency chaired by Vincent Spinelli, managing director on HSE at KazMunayGas NC JSC, was held at KAZENERGY Association. The issues of changing the environmental legislation, implementation of the Initiative for Production Industry Transparency (IPIT) and GG emissions regulation system functioning were discussed. Currently, the draft Law “On amendments and additions to some legislative acts on environmental issues” is being considered by the Mazhilis of RK. The document provides exclusion of alignment of Gas Utilization Program (GUP) with environmental authorities, responsibility for deviation from gas flaring “scenarios”, environmental permits and extension of cases of technically unavoidable gas flaring. With respect to responsibility for environmental damage caused in the part of tax rates 10-fold increase in the rates of payment for excess emissions and 20-fold increase in the rates of maslikhats is excluded, however, state agencies 20 times increased the basic rate of gas flaring. Further work on changing the rates of payments and the list of contaminants according to OECD countries experience is being conducted. Moreover, the Rules of the economic assessment of damage caused by environmental pollution were changed: exclusion of unjustified multiplying factors, introduction of a single formula on emissions (stationary sources/flares), linking of environmental damage to the rates of the Tax Code of RK.
