Baykitsky District

Coordinates: 61°20?0?N 97°0?0?E / 61.33333°N 97.00000°E / 61.33333; 97.00000 Baykitsky District (Russian: ? ) was a former district (raion), one of the three in the former Evenk Autonomous Okrug, which was merged into Krasnoyarsk Krai on 1 January 2007.[1][2]

Location

Former Baykitsky district on a map of Evenkia

Baykitsky district was located in the south-western area of the Evenk Autonomous Okrug. The district shared borders with (clockwise from the north) Ilimpiyskiy and Tungussko-Chunsky districts within the Evenk AO, and Boguchansky, Motyginsky, Severo-Yeniseysky, Yeniseysky, and Turukhansky districts of Krasnoyarsk Krai. The total area of the district was 102,000 km2 and the administrative centre was the town of Baykit.

Geography

The district was located in the Central Siberian Plateau, around 500-600 metres above sea level, in the middle course of the Podkamennaya Tunguska river - its confluence with the Baikitik can be found in the former area of the district. The highest point of the district was Onot Mountain at 787 metres.[3]

History

Baykitsky district was created in 1927, three years before the creation of Evenk AO.[4] The district was abolished upon the merger of Evenk AO and Krasnoyarsk Krai, on 1 January 2007. It now forms the south-western area of Evenkiysky District.

Economy

Infrastructure

The district was the centre of industrial development in Evenkia. Within its territory, there were many gas and oil fields, such as Yurubchenko-Tokhomskoye, Kuyumbinskoye and Omorinskoye. The East Siberian Oil Company, the majority of which was formerly owned by Yukos, is currently actively developing the Yurubchenko-Tokhomskoye field.[5]

Not far away from the oil field is an oil refinery with a maximum capacity of 40,000 tons of oil per year. The development of the field and refinery put an end to the energy problems in Baykitsky district.

Logging

There is a small timber processing industry in the area. Currently it only produces small volumes of timber - only around 10-15 thousand tons of wood. This figure is planned to be increased in the future, going up to 50,000 or possibly 100,000 tons, so that all of Evenkiysky District can be supplied with wood rather than just the former Baykitsky district, and possibly later supplying other regions.

Reindeer herding

In the past, reindeer herding was well-developed in the area. In just the village of Surinda, there were roughly 15,000 reindeer, and in the village of Poligus, there were up to 10,000.[6] However, in recent years the figure has fallen drastically and the total number of reindeer in the former district has fallen to well under 2,000.

Livestock and other foods

Some people in the settlements of the former district use livestock and gardening as their occupation. As well as this, fishing and hunting are popular activities in the district, all of which made the district relatively self-sufficient in its needs.[7]
