The government of Buryatia has determined a preliminary annual demand for natural gas. Ulan-Ude boiler houses will need 482 million cubic meters, energy and industry entities - 734 million cubic meters.

According to the press service of the government of the republic, the head of Buryatia, Aleksey Tsydenov, suggested that Gazprom PJSC study the issue of placing an installation for the production of liquefied natural gas. Cooperation issues were discussed by the First Deputy Head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East Gadzhimagomed Huseynov, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Gazprom PJSC Vitaly Markelov and the regional authorities.

“We are considering options for both the construction of a pipeline and the use of liquefied natural gas. Taking into account the prospects for the implementation of the project for the construction of a gas pipeline through Mongolia to China, we expect that we will be able to switch to natural gas, ”said Alexey Tsydenov. 

As Gadzhimagomed Huseynov noted, today the Far Eastern region is gasified by 23,8%. The goal is to bring the figure to 2030% by 40.

“For our part, we are ready to provide support in every possible way in the implementation of all projects, and not only in Buryatia, but in general in the Far East as a whole,” he added.

The representative of PJSC Gazprom noted the importance of updating the General Scheme for gas supply and gasification of the republic until 2030, taking into account the prospects for the development of production and gas transmission capacities of the company in Eastern Siberia.

In March, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said that the level of gasification in the Far East is only 18%. The all-Russian indicator is over 70%. Mishustin called the low provision of the region with natural gas a serious problem... He proposed to work out the issues of using liquefied natural gas, which is delivered in containers, as an alternative to conventional gasification. And also to work out plans for the development of gas chemistry and gas processing.
