Slavneft-Krasnoyarskneftegaz Plants 600,000 Conifer Seedlings

21 October 2021

Slavneft-Krasnoyarskneftegaz has planted over 600,000 spruce and pine seedlings in Krasnoyarsk Territory. The area of forest plantations and seed sowing exceeded 500 hectares.

The trees were planted in five districts in the north of the region. The seedlings were grown in nurseries for three years until they reached a height of 15 cm. With this size, the root system of the trees ensures that the plants survive well in areas with cold climates. The seedlings were not selected randomly, as spruce and Siberian pine form the basis of Eastern Siberia’s forest reserves. The seedlings were transported to the planting site in special containers to avoid damage or drying out of the roots.

Environment protection is an integral part of Rosneft Oil Company’s corporate culture and social policy. The Company is implementing a number of comprehensive programmes for the preservation and restoration of natural resources. Rosneft is committed to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, including the Life On Land.

Slavneft-Krasnoyarskneftegaz implements a set of environmental protection measures to reduce the impact on nature, including utilisation of associated petroleum gas, improvement of pipeline reliability, and replenishment of water bioresources. Over the past five years, the enterprise has released more than a million fry of valuable fish species into the Yenisei River.
