China was to come to terms with the fact that it was getting only half of the Eastern-Siberia oil.
Even the open information demonstrates how the route of oil pipeline was tossed from southern to northern side of Baikal and by the end fled 400 km to the north, to the territory of permafrost and mountain chains that does nor appear a suitable place for the construction of the pipeline. It is most likely that the mass media never got all the information, and a serious undercover battle at the highest levels was led against the project as such, which is not surprising.
The oil pipeline was relocated to the north of the lake. At first beyond the watershed area and later after the designer did a little more thinking, it was moved 400 km to the north because the mountain chain immediately to the north of the lake is an area of catastrophic earthquakes and steep hills.

While the origin of the circles is unknown, the peculiar pattern suggests convection (upwelling) in the lake’s water column.
although not nearly as distinct—have been documented in the same central area of the lake in April 1994 (during the STS-59 Shuttle mission) and in 1985 (during the STS-51B Shuttle mission).

But since nasa says its unknown how it happens, I'm not going to out smart them. I'm not a rocket scientist.
