The recent fly over the oil-field South-western Tazhigali at North Caspiy showed the amount of spilled oil can be varied according to different estimations from 300 to 1000 tons, OKIOC company source reported. The experts are concerned that after the ice has melted the spot can move in different directions.If it will be moving in the direction of shallow waters the situation will bring considerable damage. Bur if the wind blows it in the direction of the deep waters the possible sizes of the catastrophe can hardly be estimated. According to the experts, OKIOC could have taken drastic measures, have begun to construct the barrage and to install sorbent zones (i.e. to unload oil-adsorbing materials and to start banking and mechanical localization of the spillage). The cost of the localization banking is estimated at the rate of $10-20 mln.
