The issue of building a gas pipeline from Kovykta to Sayansk will be considered by the Russian government and Gazprom - Dmitry Medvedev
"I will instruct Gazprom and the ministries to deal with this problem, we need to understand the needs and opportunities. I think that the idea is good, because it allows both Kovykta to develop and new industrial production in the region, "Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with Irkutsk Region Governor Sergei Levchenko on Wednesday.

S.Levchenko told the prime minister that the regional gas pipeline was included in the Power of Siberia gas pipeline construction project, and it would be logical to create it.

Earlier it was reported that D. Medvedev instructed a number of ministries, departments and companies to prepare a "roadmap" for the development of gas chemical plants in the Irkutsk region on the basis of the Kovykta gas condensate field for the period up to 2030.

The Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation, and the Federal Antimonopoly Service were named responsible for preparing the “road map” It is also planned to involve the government of the Irkutsk Region, PJSC Gazprom, OJSC NK Rosneft, OJSC Sayanskkhimplast, JSC Angarsk Petrochemical Company, OJSC Angarsk Polymer Plant and other interested organizations to prepare the document.
The government is waiting for a corresponding report until September 28 of 2016, Interfax notes.

The problem of gasification of the Irkutsk region and the development of gas chemistry in it rests on too high a gas price due to the need to build a gas pipeline from Kovykta to the industrially developed southern regions of the Irkutsk region. At present, gas from the Kovykta gas and oil complex is supposed to be supplied mainly to Power of Siberia, and only a small part is supplied to gasification of Bratsk and several other settlements located in the neighborhood.

Irkutsk Region Governor Sergei Levchenko reported in April that Gazprom was considering the possibility of building an LNG plant at the Sayanskkhimplast JSC industrial site.

In addition, following a meeting of the development commission of the Far East and the Baikal region at the end of May, S.Levchenko reported that the Irkutsk Oblast Government intends to involve China’s CNPC (China National Petroleum Corporation) in the construction of the Kovykta-Sayansk regional gas pipeline.
