Maroon;  Oil pipeline, which is more harmful than profitable / Increased gastrointestinal and lung diseases due to oil pollution in the region / Ardal MP: I apologize to the people

For several decades, the Maroon oil transmission pipeline from Khuzestan has passed through Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province to Isfahan. This pipeline has caused many health and environmental problems for some people in these areas due to wear and tear. To this day it remains unresolved.

According to the ILNA correspondent, the Maroon oil pipeline from Khuzestan to Isfahan, passing through Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, which has a lifespan of 50 years, has been broken and exploded many times due to wear and tear, and many problems for the people of the region, including water pollution. Soil as well as gastrointestinal diseases. But the bigger problem is the migration of the population living in these areas to big cities and neighboring provinces such as Isfahan. A few days ago, this oil pipe in Sarkhoon broke and exploded, which caused many problems.

The provincial crisis committee should announce the amount of damages in a transparent manner

In an interview with ILNA, a member of the popular campaign in support of the benevolent Zagros said: “None of the responsible institutions in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province or in Khuzestan province consider themselves responsible for following up this problem and trying to solve it.” کردن.

Yousef Farhadi Babadi continued: “Explosions have occurred many times for oil pipelines similar to the recent incident in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, and experts from the region believe that the soil there should be moved.” But the important issue is how much of these soils are destroyed and should be moved by creating these pollutions. When the crisis committee is formed in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, they must transparently estimate and announce the amount of damages.

Consider an appropriate budget

Pointing out that now is the budget season, he said: “Officials and representatives of Khuzestan and Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari provinces in the parliament should be pursued from now on and a budget from the oil company to compensate the damages caused to the region due to the Maroon oil transmission line.” Consider. It is the job of the Natural Resources Authority to estimate the damage and provide it to the authorities for funding, and once the budgets have been estimated, environmental experts and activists can then determine the new location of the transmission line.

Farhadi Babadi, referring to the recent breakdown of the Maroon oil pipeline in the Sarkhon area of ​​Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari, added: If these pipes are not worn out, even with landslides, they must have mechanical resistance to accidents, and if the area is in danger of landslides, they must redirect this pipeline and move it to another place. But so far no expert data on the problems of the Maroon pipeline in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province has been clearly announced.

The health of 5 million Khuzestanis may be in danger

The environmental activist said that the river near the region, under the influence of the Marun pipeline burst damage, directs floods to the Karun River, where contaminated water may enter the Karun Dam reservoir and threaten the drinking water of the people of Khuzestan. The officials of Khuzestan province, as the custodian of this matter, should look at the issue with an expert view, whether this water has a problem in terms of pollution or not? Is it possible to sacrifice the health of drinking water to 5 million people in a Kurdish refinery?

Analysts do not view this oil pipeline as scientific

He said that my duty is an expert in the field of environment in this field is a scientific study and not political analysis, adding: “Unfortunately, the relevant experts are not scientific analysts and their goal is to transfer crude oil from Khuzestan to Isfahan, while here it is their duty and that of MPs.” Follow the demands of the people, because in addition to farming in the region, farmers also use contaminated water and fodder for their livestock, which they take to pastures.

Due to the poverty of the locals, it is not possible to provide evidence

Farhadi Babadi continued: Farmers who have suffered damage in this area must provide evidence. The official forensic expert must be present in the area to assess and assess the damage caused by the oil pollution, both in terms of health and the environment, and then to prosecute the oil company. Unfortunately, due to the fact that the people of the region are economically poor, it is not possible for them to provide evidence. Of course, due to the weakness of civil institutions, legal action is not taken.

Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari officials should get involved

He said: the officials of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province should enter the issue here as the public prosecutor and send an expert to the region to determine the amount of damages, but unfortunately this action has not been done by them so far and this process is constantly repeated.

The voice of the people of Miankuh is not heard by any official

In an interview with ILNA, the head of the Sarkhoon city council in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari said: “The voices of the suffering people of Miankuh have not been heard for three decades. In addition to destroying aquatic animals, it also completely polluted the river and the environment of the region.

Migration due to oil transmission line problems

Jafar Islamian added: “The problems that the Maroon oil transmission line has created in the region have caused the migration of many residents of the region to the outskirts of cities and the expansion of urban suburbs in Shahrekord and Isfahan.” These migrations have led to marginalization and the creation of fake jobs in big cities. Dozens of schools have been evacuated between the mountains and Sarkhon, and hundreds of students prone to Miankuh and Sarkhon have been displaced in small and large cities in the province and neighboring provinces to continue their education.

Gastrointestinal and lung diseases of the population due to oil pollution

The head of the Sarkhoon city council continued: “So far, thousands of people in these areas have suffered from gastrointestinal and lung diseases due to the pollution caused by the Maroon pipeline.” Even domestic animals are not safe from this problem and are lost. In previous years, we also had this problem with the oil pipeline, which a few days ago caused a disaster with a fracture in the Sarkhon route. This time, too, the problem took away the peace from the oppressed people of the region, and with the outflow of oil, it destroyed the lives and lands of their farmers. To whom should the people of the region tell the problems that have arisen, if anyone has an ear for their problems?

The fire and smoke from the explosion destroyed people’s lives

Islamian stated: We ask the people’s representative in the parliament to seriously follow the demands of the affected people in the region. Talk to the Minister of Oil and let the officials of the country come to the region and see the problems of the people up close. The pipes in the area are worn out and they cause a lot of problems for the people every year. Smoke from oil pipeline fires has taken over people’s lives. People do not really deserve to live this way.

Chairman of Sarkhoon City Council: So far, thousands of people in these areas have suffered from gastrointestinal and lung diseases due to pollution caused by the Maroon pipeline. Even domestic animals are not safe from this problem and are lost.

The representative of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari in the Supreme Council of Provinces also told the ILNA reporter: “Following the entry of oil into the environment and the burning of oils discharged into the environment, fires also occurred in some areas and in addition to water and soil pollution, caused air pollution in Became the area.

This is the fifth oil explosion in the region

Lotfollah Sheikh Samani described this incident as the fifth incident of oil spill through this pipeline in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province and stated: This accident was broken and set on fire due to a mountain fall and landslide at 228 km of Maroon oil pipeline. .

Sheikh Samani pointed out: Given that there have been several previous studies in this regard, although the transportation of crude oil by pipeline seems more rational than road transport, but issues such as age, wear and tear, weather and regional conditions, violations of privacy The safety of the pipeline by residential areas, multiple crossroads with roads and common points with rivers along the route is exacerbating concerns about the pipeline and possible dangers in the future.

Maroon is nothing but a loss for Chaharmahal and Behtiari

Sheikh Samani said: the location of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province in the route of Marun oil transmission pipeline is nothing but a loss for Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province and no rights for the cities that are in the route of transfer and are exposed to the dangers of sudden accidents. , Is not considered.

He clarified:Hojjatoleslam Ibrahim Ra’isi, the head of the Judiciary, had visited the province on September 11 this year and called for a solution to this problem at a meeting of the Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Administrative Council. Therefore, the National Oil Company should implement the results of the study of changes in the Maroon oil transmission line in the Miankuh section, which it had previously concluded with one of the most important universities in the country, to reduce the risk of leakage and fire in people’s lives, transportation, production and employment in the region. Do not threaten.

Sheikh Samani: The location of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province on the route of the Marun oil pipeline is nothing but a loss for Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, and there are no rights for cities that are on the route of transfer and are at risk of sudden accidents. Is not considered

After the rains, the amount of damage is determined

In an interview with ILNA, the central district of Miankuh, Ardal city, said: “Oil pollution has not yet entered people’s lands.” Should the time of the growing season come and see if the people of the region can use the river water in their paddy fields for agricultural use or not? Also, the entry of oil into the water after rain determines the amount of damage.

The fracture was not due to tube wear

Imamdad Shahbazi added: “This pipe fracture at this point was not due to the wear of the pipe and the landslide caused this to happen.” Of course, I do not deny the deterioration of the Maroon oil pipeline in other places, because these oil pipelines are from more than 40 years ago.

Shahbazi continued: “This pipeline will definitely cause environmental pollution by passing through the region, and especially for the agricultural water of the people, and this issue of agricultural water pollution has also existed in the past years.” There have been some investigations by the officials so far, but more is expected of them.

I apologize to the people

The people’s representative of Ardal, Farsan, Kiar, Koohrang and Dastgerd villages also stated in this regard: First of all, the people of Miankuh district about the damages caused by the explosion and explosion of the Maroon oil pipeline that transports oil from Khuzestan province to Isfahan and Tehran. I apologize slowly.

Explosions have disrupted people’s lives

Addressing the head of the Judiciary, Qudratullah Hamzeh Shalmzari also said: “Mr. Raeisi, during the last 30 years, due to the wear and tear of the oil pipeline, there have been four explosions along the pipeline from Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province and disrupted people’s lives.”

He said: From people’s drinking water to agriculture, livestock, orchards and fisheries. The people of the region are living in hardships. These incidents have caused the migration of the people from the region, and despite numerous warnings to the authorities, unfortunately, no major action has been taken so far.

Hamzeh Shalamzari stated: Of course, on the day of the incident, the governor and other provincial officials were present in the region and held a meeting in the district and made decisions in this regard, and I also had meetings with some state officials in this regard. Decisions have been made to solve the problems, which are not enough, and require the authorities to follow up on this problem in a special way.
