Azerbaijan, Baku, March 2 /. Trend , E. Ismayilov /
In 2010, the company SOCAR (State Oil Company of Azerbaijan) plans to complete the main sewage treatment works in the territory of Oil and Gas Producing Department Bibi Heybat, SOCAR head Rovnag Abdullayev said.
"It is planned to complete the main sewage treatment works in Bibi Heybat in 2010," he said.
According to Abdullayev, after drying the lake in OGPD, which receives canalization and reservoir waters and placing new treatment machinery in OGPD contaminated land, will not be remained.
The main problem for the company is reservoir waters, but now the company doesn't discharge reservoir waters into the sea, and land in the territory of Bibi Heybat. After the establishment of a special closed-loop system SOCAR pump this water back into the reservoir. Now in the territory of the OGPD only the sewer waters stream down from residential areas, in particular from the village of Badamdar. But SOCAR jointly with JSC Azersu works within the project on installing treatment marchinery in Bibi Heybat that will clean up sewage waters. In particular, this water will be sent for watering about 100,000 trees to be planted in the territory of OGPD.
Abdullayev said, similar treatment machineries are introduced in Pirallahi Island, and water obtained after the processing of sewage is used for watering and technical purposes.
The company plans to spend about 50 million manats for ecological projects in 2010. "The ecological sphere is a priority of the company's activity. We plan to spend approximately 50 million manats for ecological projects in 2010,"Abdullaev stressed.
