London, Jul 23 -- A press report, dated Jul 22, states: The National Iranian Oil Company has been fined $850,000 over an oil leak which led to water pollution in parts of Luristan Province. The National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company was fined after a pipeline burst near the city of Pol-e-Dokhtar polluted the water of Kashkan River, leaving many birds and fish dead. "The Ministry of Petroleum is responsible for the incident and according to the law it should pay $550,000 for the marine loss and $300,000 for polluting the water, soil and underground sources," the head of the Luristan Environment Organisation, Ali Kakavand, said. "The ministry will be allowed to use the six-kilometre pipeline until the end of the current Persian year, only if it restores the burst part," he added. (See issue of Jul 15.)
