    MURMANSK, January 28, 2003. /RIA Novosti correspondent Yekaterina Kozlova/ -- Norway will allocate over 6 million kroner (approximately $900,000) to rehabilitate a radioactive waste burial in the Andreev bay in the Barents waters adjacent to Russia. Bilateral agreement has recently been inked in Kirkenes, Norway.

    As reported by the administration of the Murmansk region, the first contract intends the holding of a comprehensive geological survey in the Andreev bay. So far, only trustworthy information is obtaining on the condition of radioactive waste on the surface of the burial and not more than 30 centimeters below the surface.

    For an in-depth study a thorough geological survey has to be held.

    Geological survey is also needed to create, on a longer perspective, an infrastructure in the Andreev bay. Such study will help to say where infrastructure facilities can be built, the administration said.

    The second contract intends the formation of conditions for work of the personnel inside the sea storage of radioactive waste.
