The results presented in this article are an attempt to develop a methodology for predicting productivity and determining the contour of the object of the I category of negative impact on the environment. Using an empirically derived set of methods of analysis, a study of the state of oil and gas fields in the Samara region of different terms and stages of the life cycle of operation, productivity, etc. was carried out. The methodology is based on the evaluation of fields as a part of the license area for the purpose of further decision-making on the system of measures in the field of waste management, development of programs for improving environmental efficiency, taking into account the development of the fields. The basic principle of the developed methodology implies a comprehensive analysis of the balance schemes of material flows of technological cycles of raw materials and energy, as well as the formed types of chemical compounds in the composition of emissions, effluents and wastes. Application of multi-parameter method of assessment will allow not only to identify additional volumes of uncontrolled impact and to implement preventive measures, but also to maintain communication between the participants of the process of environmental management: public authorities, public, production.
