Acceleration of gasification of the Angara region to be discussed in the Russian government
The Russian government will discuss the acceleration of gasification of the Irkutsk region. Deputy Chairman Alexander Novak said that the event will take place early next year.
According to the press service of the regional government, Novak said this when summing up the results of the annual all-Russian competition "MediaTEK". According to him, accelerating gasification is an important issue under the control of the Russian president. There is a lot of work to be done to develop a unified gas supply system in Eastern Siberia.
As the Prime Minister of the Irkutsk Region Konstantin Zaitsev noted, in accordance with the country's new energy strategy, the level of gasification of the region by 2035 should increase by 14,3%. At present, Priangarye consumes less than 9% of gas, despite the fact that the region has the largest gas field in eastern Russia - Kovyktinskoye.
In June, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government, together with the regions, to ensure a phased completion of gasification by 2024... By the end of 2019, the average level of gasification in Russia was 70,1%.
