Contaminated water (water/oil mixture) leaked out of the isolated oil pipeline body into the Volga River through the fault of the contracting company Vozrozhdenie, CJSC in the process of dismantling of a decommissioned submerged crossing of the Pokrovka-Syzran trunk oil pipeline (TOP). The above TOP was decommissioned over 10 years ago. 
The leakage point was localized with floating booms and the film skimming was organized.
The operations were performed by the emergency response division of Transneft Volga Region, JSC.
The analysis of the samples collected upstream and downstream in the area of the operated submerged crossing of the trunk oil pipeline didn’t show any deviations.  
The film skimming operations are completed by now.
