Publish date: March 5, 2007

According to regional representative of the Federal Service on Control of Natural Resources Exploitation (Rosprirodnadzor), the White Sea could be affected by the oil pollution.

According to regional head of sea and shelf control at Rosprirodnadzor Alexander Popov, continued discharges of oil substances into the Arkhangelsk port zone could affect the White Sea environment, BarentsObserver reports.

“If the problem of oily waters collection in Arkhangelsk port is not solved, the ships would have to pump out the oily waters in the discharge restricted zones. This process can pollute the water in the White Sea basin”, Popov explains.
