The article describes the types of mechanical landscape disfigurement in the areas of oil and gas production (Purovsky district of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area). The landscape complexes of the considered territory function as the resources characterizing economic value of landscapes and at the same time existing mode of their use. Landscape monitoring is organized to supervise their change: anthropogenic impact, dynamics of the areas under anthropogenic impact, degradation extent of natural complexes. The dependence of distribution of dangerous exogenous processes on technogenic burden is assessed. Rehabilitation features of the disturbed landscapes are registered. The assessment of load level on natural landscapes of the West Tarko-Sale gas field is given for illustrative purposes. The degree of landscape transformation and the area occupied with different types of anthropogenic landscapes in the field territory are defined. It is concluded that, to preserve soil and vegetable cover at industrial development of the territory, it is vital to maximize localization of all types of influence in the course of construction and operation of an industrial complex.
