On the 17th of March 2019 there was a traditional reindeer herders holiday in Numto, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, Russia. On the same day also the Russian oil company Surgutneftegaz and regional government representatives (Surgut district, Western Siberia) came to the village to announce that they have agreed on installing three more oil drilling wells in Numto.
This time the drilling location is on wetlands, 15 kilometres from the sacred lake Numto.
This is a territory where before it was prohibited to drill on. At the end of January the Russian oil company Surgutneftegas had a "public" hearing where only few people from Numto park were invited. The majority of Nenets and Khanty people were not consulted. When people found out, a conflict escalated. Nenets and Khanty people wrote an anonymous letter to the prosecutor office to state, declaring their firm opposition to oil drilling and that the industry had not consulted them.
On the 17th of March a press team traveled up to the village to document the meeting with the government and the oil company and make interviews with people. Access to the village however is controlled by the oil company who formally owns all the privatized roads developed for drilling project infrastructure. People are finding it increasingly difficult to be able to tell their story to the press. They feel like living like prisoners surrounded by oil industry infrastructure roads.
