The quality of the natural environment is one of the main ones in human environmental activities. Environmental degradation is alarming, especially in the northern regions, when developing land areas allocated for geological exploration. During the construction of deep exploration wells, due to the low technical level of project documentation for the construction of wells, low production culture and technological discipline, significant damage is caused to the environment and biological resources of the district. During the installation of drilling rigs, land is often violated with a much larger area than is allocated for the construction of a drilling rig. The recultivation of disturbed lands is not carried out effectively enough.
