10-Сен-2016 – От 56°N 52°E планирую путь к 56°N 53°E. Встроенная в «Рено» программа навигации «TomTom» эту местность совсем не знает. Спасает «Яндекс» на телефоне. К точке конфлюенции можно подойти по полю, 670 метров от села Ямурзино. Есть качалка, расположенная в 530 метрах юго-западнее точки конфлюенции. К качалке идёт песчаная грунтовка. Пока я иду на точку, мимо моей машины проезжает «минивен» от пункта сбора нефти. Служба безопасности не дремлет.

Точка находится в Агрызском районе республики Татарстан в 670 метрах юго-западнее села Ямурзино. Местность равнинная, используется под посевы озимых. Вокруг много нефтяных скважин.


10-Sep-2016 – I was trying to plan a route from the 56°N 52°E to the 56°N 53°E confluence point. The «TomTom» navigation software installed in my Renault car does not know that location at all. The navigation software 'Yandex' on my cell phone saved the situation. The confluence point can be reached by walking 670 meters through the field from Yamurzino village. There is an oil well located 530 meters southwest of the confluence point. There is a sandy dirt road leading to the oil well. While I was walking to the confluence point a minivan car from the oil gathering plant passed my car. The security service is always alert.

The confluence point is located in Agryz district of the Tatarstan republic, 670 meters southwest of Yamurzino village. The landscape is flat, the soil is being used for cover crops. There are a lot of oil wells around.
