Chemical composition of soil waters in oil and gas production areas of north of Western Siberia

Research output


This study describes the changes in the chemical composition of soil waters under the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors in the area of development of oil and gas condensate fields in the north of Western Siberia. The concentration of chemical elements (Na, K, Ca, Cu, Zn, Fe, Pb, Cd, Ni, Co, Cr, Ba, Sr, Cd, and Mn) in soils, ground and soil waters was determined. Pollution of soil water and soil is local in nature and it is characteristic of areas located in the immediate vicinity of industrial facilities. A set of indicators is proposed for assessing the transformation of natural complexes under the influence of oil and gas production. The increased pH values, concentrations of petroleum hydrocarbons, nitrates, chlorides, sodium, potassium, calcium, barium, strontium, iron and manganese, as well as zinc, vanadium, cobalt and nickel are observed. In the impact zones in soil waters and soils. Mechanical disturbances of the soil and vegetation cover lead to an increase in defrost, secondary waterlogging and are accompanied by an increase in the migration of chemical elements in the catenary structure of landscapes.
