In 2015 it is planned to open scientific stationary centers in the settlement Sabetta, in Bovanenkovo field and on the Gydan peninsula. This information was given by a deputy governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the director of the department of international and external economic relations Alexander Mazharov on the press-conference in Salekhard.
The deputy governor notes that active scientific and research work on exploration of the Arctic will be continued this way next year. A stationary laboratory was made recently on Beliy Island, where it became possible to process primary scientific data and to receive results without attracting additional budgetary funds and heavy bureaucratic apparatus.
Also Alexander Mazharov called creation and beginning of work of the Russian center for exploration of the Arctic one of the main events of the year. As he notes, this is a kind of the result of international activity of the region, which is systemically conducted on the territory of Yamal during many years, including all conferences on safety in the Arctic and international scientific forums, as he underlines.
Also the director of the department of international and external economic relations mentions that, unfortunately, accidents happen on production, they do ecological harm and considerable financial losses. And industrialists understand that scientific work in extractive fields should be conducted, including for decrease of material losses. As he notes, devices, which fix absolutely everything – emissions, pollutions, poaching, violation of marine navigation, are appearing now. Such stationary centers will be set there, where industrial development is conducted.
Also Alexander Mazharov mentioned appearing of funnels in Yamal. As he notes, it is clear that they are natural phenomena. But it also needs to understand: what if it would happen in a settlement or in an extractive field. Therefore, it is necessary to create all conditions for scientists, to provide them with transport and equipment.
Expeditions to the Gydan peninsula with participation of employees of the Institute of the Earth Cryosphere at the Siberian Branch of the RAS (Tyumen), the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (Saint Petersburg), the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas (Moscow) is planned for 2015. These researches will anticipate industrial development of a north-eastern part of Yamal.
