To extend Gazprom's right for Sakhalin-2 gas as royalties for the period of the PSA is ready for the Ministry of Energy
This was reported to Interfax by a source familiar with the situation.

At the same time, the Ministry put forward a proposal for the Sakhalin Region to receive royalties and profitable products in kind - gas for supply to consumers of the Sakhalin Region, and in case of insufficiency of these volumes - to receive gas payments due to the Russian government.

Initially it was assumed that Gazprom would receive and sell Sakhalin-2 gas from 2011 to 2014 a year, and as the Kirinskoye field (Sakhalin-3 project) was commissioned and released to the "shelf" of 5,5 billion cubic meters. meters of gas, Gazprom will sell this gas to consumers of the Sakhalin region. However, Gazprom recognized that prices operating in the Sakhalin Oblast do not allow for cost-effective deliveries from the Kirinskoye field. The Kirinskoye field was launched at the end of 2013.

Last May, the Deputy Chairman of the Board of Gazprom, Vitaly Markelov, said that “in the summer period, we suspended the operation of the Kirinskoye field due to the fact that there is no technological selection of gas in the summer period”. "Therefore, we will launch it in the autumn-winter period 2015-2016's. At present, the Far East is provided with gas from Sakhalin-1 and Sakhalin-2, he said.
In 2014, Gazprom persuaded the Ministry of Energy to extend the order to 2017, last year a proposal was made to extend it for the entire duration of the PSA.

According to the Interfax source, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade acknowledged the need to extend this order, despite the shortfall in Russian revenues, because it understands that there are no other sources of gas to supply consumers in the Sakhalin Oblast. However, he said, the ministry considers it necessary to monitor other sources in order to later undo the situation.

The official representative of the Ministry of Economic Development, Elena Lashkina, told Interfax that the ministry sent its position to the Ministry of Energy, in which it indicated that the Sakhalin-2 project gas could be the most possible source of gasification in the Sakhalin Region. “At the same time, the necessity of bringing the Sakhalin-3 project to the design capacity for further gasification of the region was repeatedly discussed at the level of the Russian government,” she said.

"In this regard, in our opinion, it is necessary to introduce obligations to monitor the issues related to the gasification of the Sakhalin Oblast, with a view to implementing the schedule for reaching the gas volumes (produced within the Sakhalin-3 project), sufficient to meet the needs of the Sakhalin Oblast and Primorsky Krai, and the possibility of removing existing technical restrictions on the supply of natural gas produced at the Kirinskoye field, "said the representative of the Ministry of Economic Development.
The Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Energy failed to get comments.

According to the reports of the operator Sakhalin-2 - Sakhalin Energy, in 2015, through the southern gas metering station, in particular, to the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk TPP-1, 617 million cubic meters were supplied. meters of gas (in 2014 year - 578 million cubic meters), through the northern metering station (through the Sakhalin-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok gas pipeline for further use for the fuel and energy complex of the Far East and Primorye) - 467 million cubic meters. m (compared to 926 million cubic meters of gas in 2014 year).

In total, about 2015 billion cubic meters were transferred to the Russian side in 1,1. meters of gas project "Sakhalin-2" compared with 1,5 billion cubic meters. m in 2014 year.
