The award ceremony took place at the Council meeting on 19 July 2019. The meeting was devoted to the analysis of the joint work of public authorities, public and fisheries organisations of Nizhny Novgorod Region during surprise inspections to monitor, control and protect aquatic biological resources in the spring spawning period.
Transneft Upper Volga was marked for its long-term participation in fish conservation measures for artificial stocking in the spring spawning period as well as assistance in preserving aquatic biological resources.
Every year, the Company holds events on artificial stocking of water reservoirs in order to voluntarily compensate for the environmental impact during revamping trunk pipelines. Compliance with high standards of environmental safety and requirements of environmental regulations is an obligatory condition of implementation and operation of all Transneft Upper Volga’s infrastructure projects.
In 2018, within the implementation of the plan for artificial reproduction of aquatic fauna, more than 1,320,000 young sterlet, silver carp and wild carp fishes were released into the Gorky and Cheboksary Reservoirs in Ivanovo and Nizhny Novgorod Regions, as well as into the Oka and Vyatka Rivers in Vladimir and Kirov Regions.
