Rosneft ready to build main gas pipelines in Eastern Siberia

NK Rosneft is ready to build its main gas pipelines in Eastern Siberia, said the head of the company Igor Sechin.

"There is no single gas supply system in this region, but there are gas resources. If Gazprom implements the project of construction of the main gas pipeline "Siberia Power" and (to it) will be freely accessible, of course, this will facilitate the task of transporting gas for all. But there may be different options, "- he answered the question, what will be the form of cooperation between Rosneft and Gazprom in the Far East.

“We will choose the most effective option. If this option does not involve significant investment, we will go for this option. If gas monetization will require investments in infrastructure and there will be no other way out, we have no other solution. But this will be the most effective option, ”I. Sechin emphasized.

He said that Rosneft is developing a number of new fields in Eastern Siberia: this is the Suzun-Tagul, Lodochnoye, Taas-Yuryakhskoye chain - all of these resources have a gas factor.

“And of course, we expect that we will be able to transport and monetize gas from these fields. And the volumes are quite decent - about 16 billion cubic meters per year, even up to 20 billion cubic meters, "- said I. Sechin. In his opinion, in the future, Rosneft's fields in Eastern Siberia and the Far East may yield up to 30 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

Speaking about the signing of a gas contract with China, the head of Rosneft noted that “the decision is strategic in nature and aimed primarily at developing the Far East and Eastern Siberia. We are talking about the development of large fields that require significant investment, and the efficiency of export supplies must be provided by Gazprom. I think that Gazprom will execute this part of the work, and the country will receive new fields, jobs, new infrastructure. ”
