Russian Federation takes different measures for diversification of hydrocarbon raw-materials supplies on the world market. Main business oriented directions are the gas-oil transportation to China and to the Asia-Pacific region. That is why the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) becomes one of the biggest exporting regions as well as all companies that have business activities there enter new markets.

Nowadays Surgutnefegas JSC is the biggest gas-oil production company located on the territory of Lensk district of the Republic of Sakha. At the same time the Republic of Sakha s is the second biggest center of Surgutneftegas business activity. About 12-14 % of all extractable oil reserves of Surgutneftegas in Russia are located on the territory of the republic.

The creation of infrastructure influences all the elements of the environment – atmosphere air, surface waters including the bottom clays, vegetation and topsoil etc. To account all the risks, the regular ecological monitor takes place. Analysis of monitoring data shows that business activity nave not changed the original condition of the environment. The pollution level is still low and does not exceed the TAC in many components. In numerous cases low pollution level is a result of application of modern technologies that preserve the environment.
