Environmental Record

According to Lukoil, their numbers in 2007 recorded a drop of 7.8% in the volume of pollutant effects and a drop of 3.8% in the area of contaminated lands compared to 2006. These numbers came after an appeal from EMERCON of Russia (the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense, Emergencies and Natural Disaster Recovery), which proposed that Lukoil participate in the development of monitoring, prevention, and emergency recovery systems.

In an effort to increase their productivity, Lukoil organized a contract to begin an oil pumping block in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea. They arranged an Environmental Impact Assessment of the drill site in order to organize a second exploration drill. This block, D-222, is the largest prospective structure in the north-east section of the Caspian Sea. The key issue of the assessment was the amount of damage the block would be doing to the fish stock in the area. Taking into account the depth of the operation of about 700 meters, the amount of harm would be minimal with most of the fish harmed being plankton and benthos. A rescue and salvage ship will be placed into operation to mitigate the impact on the area. They have also developed contingency plans for oil spills, and implemented an environmental monitoring system.

Famous quotes containing the word record:

    All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget. In this—as in other ways—they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it.
    John Berger (b. 1926)
