North Caspian Operating Company (NCOC)

[DOC] [North Caspian Operating Company response regarding alleged water contamination by Bolashak facility]

[Summary translation of the original Russian language response provided by Business & Human Rights Resource Centre] Since January 2012 Agip KCO, an NCOC agent company, has arrangements in place for removal of the conditionally clean water from Bolashak OPF Utilities Area. This water originates from commissioning, start-up and operation of units. These processes do not produce any hazardous waste water. This water do not contain toxic substances, such as methanol or mercaptan. Transportation and disposal of water is maintained by a licensed company which is responsible for waste water treatment. Every vehicle leaving Bolashak OPF Utilities Area for the water transportation has a supporting document and is registered at a dedicated checkpoint. NCOC receives information about the volumes of transferred water from the monthly environmental reports.
