The Ministry of Energy offered the Government two different options for resolving the issue of the "Force of Siberia"
As Alexander Novak said today in his interview to Kommersant, the Ministry of Energy proposed to the Government two different options for resolving the issue of Power of Siberia.
The first option assumes that Gazprom remains the sole owner of the gas transmission system, buying gas from independent producers and selling it for export. The second option involves the expansion of the Power of Siberia not only by Gazprom. We are talking about creating a consortium for the construction and operation of the pipe. In this case, it is assumed that either the construction of a second line, or generally a separate gas pipeline passing by a new route, is possible. But even in the latter case, Gazprom will remain the only exporter, selling gas to independent producers under an agency agreement.
At the moment, one of the main tasks is to analyze the additional volumes of gas that could be produced in Eastern Siberia, taking into account already explored reserves. According to the Russian Energy Minister, in the future, the volume of gas production and supply could be increased up to 80 billion cubic meters per year both for the domestic market and for export.
