Export of gas for independent producers via the "Siberia Power" gas pipeline can be linked to social obligations of gas supply to the population - the Ministry of Economic Development

Such a position was sent by the Ministry of Economic Development to the Ministry of Energy in fulfillment of the assignment fixed in the protocol of the presidential commission for the fuel and energy sector, a source familiar with the text of the letter told Interfax

Export of gas for independent producers through the gas pipeline
The granting of the right to export gas to independent producers from new fields in Eastern Siberia and the Far East through a single export channel through the Power of Siberia gas pipeline should be accompanied by the introduction of social obligations for them to supply gas to the population and to empower a guaranteed supplier.

“In particular, it seems appropriate to introduce an objective indicator that determines the volume of possible gas exports, depending on the volume of gas supplies to the domestic market,” the Ministry of Economic Development considers.

At the same time, the ministry stresses, one should take into account the significant potential of oil fields in the Far East in terms of supplying additional volumes of associated petroleum gas (APG). When estimating the balance of oil reserves in the DFO, the total reserves of categories А + В + С1 + С2 are estimated at 4,92 billion tons. In this regard, currently the oil companies are faced with the question of the possible directions of APG supply (taking into account the need to dispose of 95% of the extracted APG).

At the beginning of February, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin (following the meeting of the commission on the fuel and energy complex) ordered to work out the issue of possible export of gas independent through Power of Siberia within a single export channel until May 15, May 2016.

According to the Interfax source, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich instructed the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service and the Ministry of Environment to fulfill this order, in cooperation with the agencies and organizations concerned. A draft report on this issue should be submitted to the government by April 19.
