Update: The responsibility for the spill might lie at Lukoil.
A total of 3,5 square kilometers of tundra has been polluted by the spill, which took place on October 2. The spill was caused by a loss of pressure in a pipe installation, RIA Novosti reports according to BarentsObserver.com.
About 30 people now work on the site to clean up the spilled oil. Also specialists from Lukoil have been engaged, a representative of the local Ministry of Emergency Situations informs. The cleanup operation is planned completed in the course of two weeks.
The spilled oil reportedly comes from a pipe which does not belong to the Kharyaga partners, company sources told BarentsObserver.
The responsibility for the spill might lie at Lukoil, which recently opened a new pipeline connection between Kharyaga and the company's Yuzhno Khilchuyu field, enabling the Kharyaga owners to export their oil though the port terminal of Varandey.
