中石油去年新增油气储量超11亿吨

时政频道
  本报北京1月21日电  (记者冉永平)从中国石油天然气集团公司获悉,2016年,在国际油价持续低迷、生产经营面临严峻挑战的困难下,中国石油油气勘探成果丰硕,全年国内新增探明油气当量超过11亿吨,其中石油地质储量6.49亿吨、天然气地质储量5985亿立方米。截至2016年,中石油已连续10年国内新增探明储量保持10亿吨当量的高位增长,充分发挥了国内资源“压舱石”作用,为我国石油行业的可持续发展打下坚实的资源基础。  据中国石油董事长王宜林介绍,2014年国际油价暴跌以来,中国石油坚持过紧日子,投资规模连续2年大幅下降,累计降幅接近50%。但“压投资不压勘探开发”,去年勘探开发投资超过1200亿元,占公司当年全部投资的60%左右。在保持资金投入的同时,科技创新也是中石油储量高位增长的重要支撑。“十二五”期间,中国石油仅在地质勘探领域取得的重大科技成果就有40多项。比如长庆油田大面积岩性油藏立体勘探技术,在陇东地区新增探明石油储量3.69亿吨;塔里木油田强化复杂山前地震攻关,新增天然气地质储量3000亿立方米。  勘探开发成果也支撑着油气产量的稳定增长。2016年,中石油再次实现“油气两旺”,全年石油产量超过1.05亿吨,连续22年保持1亿吨以上水平;天然气产量980亿立方米,实现产量10年翻一番。   《 人民日报 》( 2017年01月22日 01 版)

绍兴:谁破坏环境让谁买单

时政频道
  本报杭州1月21日电  (记者王慧敏、顾春)公共生态环境遭到破坏,谁来负责?由谁追责?浙江省绍兴市除追究损害环境者的行政、刑事责任外,还追加了“修复受损生态环境赔偿条款”——当企业行为造成生态环境损害无法修复时,向企业索取用于替代修复的货币赔偿。这一做法,破解了“企业污染、群众受害、政府买单”的困局。  过去,公共环境损害只能对应公益诉讼制度,原告只能是公益组织。由于公共生态环境损害缺乏主体追责人,或者责任人不明确而无处追责,常常导致受损的环境无法得到及时修复。  2015年底,国务院发布试点方案,允许行政机关介入。绍兴大胆试点,成立生态环境损害赔偿制度改革试点工作领导小组,出台《绍兴市生态环境损害赔偿制度改革试点工作方案》,建立环境损害鉴定评估、赔偿磋商、司法衔接、资金使用管理和生态修复等制度体系,确定由环保局作为索赔主体,与企业进行索赔磋商,磋商失败再进入诉讼程序。以磋商为首选程序,也大大节省了司法成本。  2016年6月,诸暨市环保局查处意龙纺织轧染厂违规设置排污口将31750.66吨生产废水违规排入枫桥江,在立案查处企业违法行为的同时,启动环境损害赔偿程序。经第三方鉴定评估,核定环境损害数额为24.8万元。双方签署生态环境损害赔偿协议后,企业将这笔赔偿金缴入绍兴市“生态环境损害赔偿金”专户。这是绍兴第一起环境损害赔偿磋商案例。  为使生态得到及时修复,绍兴加强建设相关配套措施——建立生态环境损害赔偿金专用账户,资金来源除污染主体赔偿金外,也接受社会各界自愿捐赠。如果找不到责任人,可用账户资金予以修复。这样,可以做到发现一起,及时修复一起。  浙江昌峰纺织印染有限公司紧贴鉴湖,2015年因未批先建、超标排放等环境违法行为被关停,但原先超标排放留下的一条800米污水带还在向鉴湖渗透,清除及修复费用需约120万元。绍兴市环保局启用生态环境损害赔偿金专用账户,修复工作迅速展开,3个月后,周边水质恢复为三类。  截至目前,绍兴已启动赔偿磋商案件3起,索赔102万元,实施生态修复6起。   《 人民日报 》( 2017年01月22日 01 版)
