New lab to monitor the environment in the Nenets Autonomous Area

The Nenets Autonomous Area government services website reports that an accredited expert laboratory to monitor the environment has opened. The laboratory will also support regional environmental oversight at the autonomous area's Center for the Use of Nature and Environmental Protection.

The center's officials said the lab will make it possible to upgrade the environmental monitoring system in the autonomous area, including at oil and gas deposits.
