Independent gas producers will be admitted to the projected Power of Siberia gas pipeline
OJSC Gazprom can provide independent producers with the opportunity to supply associated petroleum gas to the projected Power of Siberia gas pipeline, the relevant proposals are being considered, said Dmitry Lyugai, head of the gas holding's prospective development department.
"We are considering the issue of admitting independent producers with associated petroleum gas. The issue is being resolved in a comprehensive manner," Lugai told PRIME.
In early March, the head of the Ministry of Energy Alexander Novak said that Rosneft had applied to the government commission for the fuel and energy complex with a proposal to synchronize the construction of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline with the development of gas fields owned by the company, in order to be able to supply gas, including to perspective and for export to China.
Novak also said that Gazprom had made proposals to oblige independent gas producers to supply gas to Russian regions. This initiative, according to Novak, is still preliminary and was not discussed at a meeting of the government commission on the fuel and energy complex.
Power of Siberia is a gas pipeline project from Eastern Siberia to the Far East, the commissioning date is not earlier than 2019, the capacity is up to 61 billion cubic meters per year. Gazprom hopes to sign a contract with China in May to supply 38 billion cubic meters of gas a year.
