Khabarovsk Territory offers the operator of the offshore project "Sakhalin-1" to reduce the price of tariffs

The Khabarovsk Territory offers Exxon Neftegas Ltd, the operator of the Sakhalin-1 offshore project, to reduce the selling price for gas, since due to the growth of the dollar in gas supplies, OJSC Far Eastern Generating Company, which is the main supplier of heat and electricity in the Far East, faced with a hopeless situation.

To resolve this situation, you can not put an increase in costs in the final tariffs of consumers or the costs of the regional budget. Therefore, the Khabarovsk Krai Government is trying to optimize the imbalance by working directly with the consortium with the assistance of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation.

“With the current dollar exchange rate, 1000 cubic meters of gas costs 8 rubles. instead of the planned 5,5 thousand rubles ", - explains to Kommersant the Minister of Economic Development of the Khabarovsk Territory. - But they understand the shock situation and our Russian system and have a strategic approach, expecting the situation to improve over time. But in any case, in order to change the tariff, the consent of all consortium participants is required ", - said Victor Kalashnikov.

Another problem discussed at the meeting of the Economic Council under the Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory is expensive loans for business. According to Viktor Kalashnikov, steps are being taken at the federal level to subsidize interest rates.

At the same time, it is noted that the difficult economic situation creates good conditions for large-scale import substitution and, first of all, in agriculture. So in the region due to the implementation of new projects to modernize the agro-industrial complex to 2020, it is planned to double the production of milk and meat.
