Nayara Energy, a downstream energy and petrochemicals company of international scale, celebrated World Water Day by augmenting the water resource management in Devbhoomi Dwarka. The company has been working relentlessly to achieve measurable impact in areas of water management to positively contribute to socio-economic development of the communities in which it operates.
Water resource management is one of the most crucial and vital components of Nayara Energy’s work in the region. In 2014-15 Nayara Energy conducted a geo-hydrological study and aquifer mapping across 15 project villages. According to the study, the region had around 44.0 million cubic meters (MCM) water deficit to meet required agriculture and households demand in project villages. To meet this demand and ensure supply, Nayara Energy has adopted an integrated approach for construction and renovation of water harvesting structures, groundwater recharge and optimum utilization of water through the promotion of micro-irrigation.
Speaking on the initiatives, Dr. Alois Virag, Chief Executive Officer, Nayara Energy said, “As a responsible corporate, Nayara Energy has been consistently working towards the socio-economic upliftment of the many communities in and around the Vadinar refinery. Over the last few years, we championed sustainable development programs through strong stakeholder partnerships and strategic integration of social responsibilities to benefit the people of the region. We are continuously working towards bringing positive impact to create sustainable livelihood opportunities, effective water resource management solutions, and inclusive growth to build thriving local communities.
Until January 2022, Nayara Energy has constructed and renovated 649 wells including bore well recharges, open well recharge, new check dams, deepened structures and improved drinking water storage and distribution, farm ponds, field outlets and water harvesting and promoted micro-irrigation in 642 hectares. The company has also created water storage and recharge with potential to save 14.23 MCM. As a result, the company has increased irrigation potential from 1244 hectares in 2014 to 4801 hectares in January 2022.
