Crude Accountability Incorporated

Mission

Crude Accountability works with local activists and citizen groups in the Caspian and Black Sea basins to protect the natural environment and to ensure environmental justice for communities impacted by natural resource development. We focus our campaigns on the local level, bringing the concerns and demands of communities to the international arena. We provide those who live closest to environmentally harmful projects with an opportunity to address those in power whose decisions impact their lives.

Karachaganak Relocation Campaign

Crude Accountability is seeking relocation and compensation for the
nearly 1300 villagers of Berezokva, Kazakhstan who are suffering from a
host of chronic illnesses as a result of exposure to toxins from the
nearby Karachaganak oil and gas field. The field is operated by
Chevron, British Gas, ENI and Lukoil, and is financed by the World Bank
Group's private lending arm, the International Finance Corporation
(IFC).  In other words, US tax payer money, intended to support the
World Bank's mission to alleviate poverty, is financing this
environmentally destructive project. This project was successfully completed, with village relocation, in 2018.

Crude Accountability brings you the latest information about the
environmental situation in Turkmenistan, a country that you'll
increasingly see in the headlines as it has one of the world's largest
undeveloped natural gas fields.  Turkmenistan's South Yolotan Field
alone contains an estimated 6 trillion cubic meters of gas (in
comparison, the entire US had proven gas reserves of 5.98 trillion
cubic meters by late 2007). Focusing on the impact of oil and gas
development, we bring you information about the companies active in
Turkmenistan and what this development may mean for the environment of
the country, from its desert regions to the shores of the Caspian Sea.
Crude Accountability recently published an updated dossier of companies working in the oil and gas sector in Turkmenistan, providing valuable information to researchers and activists alike. We have also published on kleptocracy, oil and gas, and corruption in this little known country.

Crude Accountability is a founding member of the Climate Justice Working Group of the Civic Solidarity Platform, an international human rights coalition working in the OSCE region. The Climate Justice Working Group brings information about climate activists, climate justice, and climate concerns to the OSCE and to the CSP within the framework of human rights.

Crude Accountability researches the environmental and social impacts of Chinese investments in the oil and gas sector in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan. We have engaged in field work, written reports (most recently, the Road to China, which was published in January 2022), and work with local activists. A recent success was the closure of 134 oil wells at the Kokzhide field as a result of fines and a stop work order by the Kazakhstani government following complaints by Crude Accountability and local activists.

Population(s) Served

Crude Accountability is a founding member of the international Prove They Are Alive! campaign, which holds accountable the government of Turkmenistan for its illegal and horrific practice of enforced disappearances in the country's prison system. Since 2013, the Prove campaign has worked with the UN, the OSCE, international financial institutions, governments, and companies to put pressure on the government of Turkmenistan to stop this hideous practice, which is in violation of international human rights standards and norms. The campaign has created a list of the disappeared as one of its foundation research projects, which is periodically updated and is the basis of much of our advocacy. We also work with families of the disappeared, government officials, and journalists to tell this story.
