PetroChina caused ecological damage worth MNT1 billion, probe concludes

The law on environmental impact evaluation, passed in 2000 and amended twice since then, calls for the assessment of the effects of any industrial activity and of the financial costs of reclamation every four years. Following complaints from citizens about the ecological damage done by PetroChina Daqing Tamsag in Dornod province, Munkh-Orgil Trade Company was asked to probe the allegations. Its head, Mr. B.Erdenebaatar, has now said they have completed the work and concluded that the ecological damage done by Petro China in the area the company was asked to study amounted to MNT1 billion in monetary terms. The company dug over 300 holes and then linked them, in the process heavily damaging the soil.
