In the fuel and energy complex, the main events of the past week concern the prospects for the implementation of the Gazprom project for the export of Sakhalin gas. The company is starting to prepare a project for the organization of supplies of Sakhalin gas to China on the "eastern" route and has already ordered its subsidiary structure to develop project documentation for a new gas pipeline to China - a diversion from the Sakhalin - Khabarovsk - Vladivostok gas pipeline (SHV), the next published issue the EastRussia bulletin. Based on the results of the work, it is planned to determine the optimal resource base for securing the tap and the optimal route.

It is also necessary to develop documentation for the construction of a gas measuring station. Documents are supposed to be prepared before December 2020 year. At the same time, the capacity and length of the new facility are not yet known. According to Gazprom's forecasts, the demand for pipeline Russian gas supplies to China by 2035 could be from 80 to 110 billion cubic meters. Sakhalin gas can also potentially be supplied as liquefied gas, which allows Gazprom to discuss the possibility of linking the price of pipeline gas to LNG prices. Deliveries of gas along the "eastern" route from Sakhalin are the next major project of Gazprom after the launch of the "Siberia Power" gas pipeline in December 2019.

The start of production at the field is still scheduled for 2023 year.

The slow progress of the project, including the absence of a binding contract with the Chinese party at the moment, is explained by the uncertainty with the source of raw materials.
