The Times quoted Vasily Bogyavlensky, deputy director of the Moscow-based Oil and Gas Research Institute, as saying that the craters are being mapped near Siberia’s Bovanenkovo gas field. He linked their formation to gas emissions from beneath the surface, and possibly gas explosions. “Anyway, we must research this phenomenon urgently, to prevent possible disasters,” he was quoted as saying.
