The activities of subsoil users will be monitored from space
Space monitoring will be introduced to control the activities of subsoil users. Vice Minister of Industry and Infrastructural Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan Dinara Shcheglova told about this at a meeting with the population of Pavlodar region, the business information center Kapital.kz reports.
Pavlodar residents are concerned about the situation in the field of subsoil use. According to the residents of the region, the procedure for state control in the Code “On Subsoil and Subsoil Use” is regulated at an insufficient level. “Due to incomplete control, subsoil users sometimes get away with many points regarding fines and other administrative responsibility,” local residents say.
According to Dinara Shcheglova, today the above law is being reviewed. In particular, amendments are envisaged in terms of strengthening supervision over the activities of subsoil users.
“Now digital technologies should be introduced in this direction and a special portal will be launched, in which all information will be available. Changes will also be made to the control procedure. In turn, space monitoring contributes to strengthening control over the development of subsoil. As you know, in the East Kazakhstan region there were cases when subsoil users went beyond the established territory and started land development separately from geological exploration. The National Company “Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary” provides the necessary data to the MIIR RK. We have provided a list of all companies that have a license to conduct exploration and development of subsoil, and a designated area. In accordance with this, relevant information is provided,” the vice minister said.
As for the situation in the East Kazakhstan region, then, she noted, a special commission will be appointed and appropriate checks will be carried out.
