Three years ago, the Department of Nature of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug revealed an oil leak in Novy Urengoy at the company's industrial site. As a result, oil got into the lake. The samples taken showed an excess of hazardous substances, which were 11.5 thousand times higher than the permissible limits.
After the instructions, Rosneftegaz cleaned up the reservoir. However, according to Neftegaz.ru, after a second check, the indicators exceeded the permissible norms by 470 times. Therefore, the supervisory authority presented the enterprise with compensation for environmental damage. Initially, the amount was 25.7 million rubles, but then it was reduced to 19.5 million. The oil and gas company challenged the court's decision, but the court of appeal again upheld the department. It is reported by Rosprirodnadzor
