The company «Rosneft» elaborated the complex of measures directed to prevention from ecological threats in the Arctic and also to liquidation of probable accidents during short time. The Arctic scientific and design center (the joint enterprise of Rosneft and ExxonMobil) concluded the contract for conducting of work in laboratories of Lomonosov Moscow State University.
As it is informed in the board of information policy of Rosneft, a complex preparation on the basis of bacteria living at low temperatures should be elaborated in the result of these researches. It will allow modernizing existing technologies for cleaning of water areas of northern seas from oil pollutions.
Specialists of the laboratories of the University will conduct researches and analysis of not less than 5 methods for receiving of such preparations and will elaborate methodology of their use. Selection of samples from oil-polluted areas will be fulfilled for finding of frost resistant bacteria from natural microbe populations. A model of selection of petro-oxidizing strains for finding of microorganisms will be developed. A created laboratory pattern of the bio-preparation will be tested in the sea aquarium, temperature and saltiness of water in which are very close to conditions of northern seas.
