The springs are a kind of indicator of the oilmen activities. Improvement or deterioration of the water quality indicates the process of oil development. Therefore, the quality of water in the springs is under a special control. The targeted geological and technical activities carried out by the oilmen in the areas of TATNEFT Company's activities contribute to prevention of drinking water sources pollution. JSC TATNEFT has developed and implemented a monitoring system for operational monitoring of surface water and groundwater in the territory of the Company's activities. The water quality is systematically monitored and analyzed in the laboratory.
Currently, the oilmen keep and maintain more than 300 springs in proper condition.
The springs' condition is only one of the segments of the environment well-being. The new Environmental Strategy of JSC TATNEFT being developed for the period up to 2025 also gives special attention to this issue.
