Pipeline routes from Kovykta under expert scrutiny

05 june 2007
Talks between environmental NGOs and TNK-BP, the key stakeholder of the Rusia Petroleum Company, the operator of the Kovykta gas field, led to an independent research on different routes of the pipeline from Kovykta.

Experts chosen by business and NGO representatives have analyzed routes proposed by the company as well as alternative pipeline routes. WWF financially supported production of map charts for the analysis.

The joint decision of business and environmentalists is a positive example at a time when companies often neglect environmental values for the sake of economic growth. WWF hopes that this research will help choose a gas pipeline route that does not put nature at risk.
