Sakhalin Prosecutor's Office will verify the fact of Rosneft oil waste spill near the village of Val

The prosecutor's office of the Sakhalin region organized a check on the fact of oil spill in the Nogliksky district. The incident happened near the village of Val. According to environmentalists, the waste belongs to a subsidiary of the company "Rosneft".

As the Chairman of the Council of the Regional Public Organization “Environmental Watch of Sakhalin”, Dmitry Lisitsin, told EastRussia, the spill area was about six cubic meters. Oily waste was found in a roadside ditch when they were taken to a sludge collector located near the village of Val.

“The spill has already been eliminated, but this case clearly highlighted the problem of the facility to which oily waste is being brought. The municipality of Noglikovskiy district leased a plot of 2014 hectares to an individual entrepreneur in 20, he, in turn, cut the land into pieces and distributed to another six or seven companies that developed oil dumpsters there. There is a huge amount of waste oil. Volumes are already estimated in tens of thousands of tons, ”said Dmitry Lisitsin.

According to him, all the waste that is brought to the sludge collectors belongs to Rosneft and its subsidiaries, which extract oil on Sakhalin. Objects near the village of Val created contrary to the laws and protests of local residents. The village is a place of compact residence of small indigenous northern people - Orok. They continue to preserve their traditions and are engaged in reindeer herding, but sludge collectors endanger their existence.

“We managed to get a lease. According to it, the only use of this land for waste is their disposal. In fact, there is an accumulation and storage of oily waste. Violated the use of this land. In this case, the administration responds in writing to us that there are no violations there. I'm not even talking about how many environmental standards and requirements are being violated there, ”said Dmitry Lisitsin.
