Scientists Supported by Tyumenneftegaz Discover Red Listed Plants in Tyumen Region

26 December 2022

Tyumenneftegaz, part of the Rosneft oil production complex, has summed up the results of a grant project to study Lake Solenoye. Tyumen State University scientists have documented 428 species of animals, plants and fungi in the vicinity of the lake, 10 of which are listed in the Red Books of the Tyumen region and Russia.

Preservation of the environment for future generations is an integral part of the corporate culture and social policies of Rosneft. The Company has a number of comprehensive programmes for the conservation and restoration of natural resources, including the use of modern technology.

Solenoye Lake is a unique natural site in the Tyumen region. The hydrochemical composition of its water is comparable to that of the Dead Sea. There are also mud deposits, estimated at about 2 million cubic metres, which can be used for balneotherapeutic purposes. It helps with skin diseases, cardiovascular diseases, nervous disorders and musculoskeletal problems.

Within the grant project, scientists, together with the company’s ecologists, developed rules for visiting Lake Solenoye. It is recommended to reduce the one-time human-induced impact when visiting the lake, to limit the presence of people in areas with rare plant species, and to remove the unique therapeutic mud from the lake. These simple rules will help to preserve not only the lake’s unique healing water, but also the rare and varied flora and fauna in the area.

Note for Editors:

Tyumenneftegaz, a subsidiary of Rosneft, is developing the Russkoye field, located in the Tazovsky district of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. The Russkoye field is classified as unique in terms of oil reserves.
