The interfluvial area between the Kolik-Egan and Sabun rivers of the west Siberian lowland is a zone of raised string bogs covering 12,885 square kilometres (4,975 sq mi). It is a status B Ramsar wetland, nominated for designation as a Wetland of International Importance in 2000.[1] The river gives its name to the Verkhae-Kolik'yegan oilfield, which has estimated ultimate recovery of 160 million cubic metres (1,008 million barrels) oil and of 120 billion cubic metres (4.2 trillion cubic feet) gas.[2]
