Amiraghyan: In the coming years Gazprom will increase exports mainly through the Power of Siberia

MOSCOW, January 23 – RIA Novosti. Experts interviewed by RIA Novosti believe that the main increase in gas exports from Russia in the coming years will come from China through the Power of Siberia gas pipeline.

“In the coming years, China will provide the main increase in export deliveries of Russian pipeline gas. If gas supplies from Russia to China in 2022 are about 16 billion cubic meters (15.5 billion cubic meters, as reported by Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak – ed.) , then in 2023 – in line with the planned increase in supply through the Siberian Power gas pipeline – they can reach 22-23 billion cubic meters, – believes Alexander Amiragyan, director of the Fuel Economy Center and Energy Complex Industries, CSR.

Vasily Karpunin, head of the information and analytical content department of BCS World of Investments, agrees with him. He noted that Power of Siberia 2, another natural gas pipeline to China with a design capacity of about 50 billion cubic meters per year, could become the most important development area.

At the same time, the project is still under development (final agreement with China has not been reported), and the supply from Sakhalin via the Sakhalin-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok pipeline has uncertainties regarding the resource base, a source of RIA Novosti underlines. Industry. “In the short term, the only conduit for export growth is the Power of Siberia… new pipeline export routes will appear closer to 2030,” he states.

Gazprom’s exports to non-CIS countries in 2022 amounted to 100.9 billion cubic meters of gas, which is 45.5% (84.2 billion cubic meters) lower than in 2021. Deliveries to Europe last year were halted along the main route Nord Stream and the balancing route Yamal-Europe, tripled through the Ukrainian gas transmission system, but increased in the Asian direction to China via Siberian Power.

Experts noted by RIA Novosti had previously said that in 2023, Russian pipeline gas supplies to countries outside the CIS could be reduced by 30% to 70 billion cubic meters.
