Russia has opportunities to increase its share on the market of liquefied natural gas. Projects planned within this sphere should be fulfilled. It was declared by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on the sitting of the Presidential Commission for Strategic Development of the Fuel and Energy Sector.
As he underlines, now it is necessary to continue work on diversification of export of Russian energy resources. As Vladimir Putin notes, it is important not only to hold positions in traditional regions of presence but also to enter new markets, to be able to respond flexibly to change of trends. In the latest years points of growth are moving to the Asia-Pacific region. This is a sustainable tendency, and states of this region are becoming major consumers of hydrocarbon raw materials. It also touches upon the market of liquefied natural gas, as Vladimir Putin notes.
Most of all was done in the sphere of building of the LNG-plant on the Yamal Peninsula — the project «Yamal LNG». Gazprom plans to fulfill several projects, considering building of the third stage of the LNG-plant within «Sakhalin-2» and also the project «Baltic LNG» as priorities. The company «Rosneft» studies opportunities of building of the LNG-plant in the Far East.
In June the minister for energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak noted that a share of Russia on the global market of liquefied natural gas made less than 5%. The task is to come to the level of 12% of the total amount of the market, as RIA «Novosti» reminds.
