The plenary session “Future of gas industry” was held within Tyumen oil and gas forum.
The governor of Tyumen Oblast Alexander Moor in his greeting speech noted that the number of participants of the forum grew every year: if last year 2100 people participated, this year — 3267. More than 30 thematic platforms were prepared.
“The forum is the result of our joint activities with autonomous regions and companies of oil and gas complex. I thank my friend, the governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitry Artyukhov. Contribution of Yamal to our forum is great. The representative delegation of fuel and energy enterprises of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug is a direct proof of this”, Moor said.
Dmitry Kobylkin, the Minister of natural resources and ecology of the Russian Federation, spoke about future of gas industry in Russia. He underlines that there are many young managers at the forum. According to him, the role of gas is only increasing.
“If we compare influence of natural gas on the environment with coal, then gas has the much smaller amount of carbon dioxide. Demand for natural gas will grow by 50% by 2040”, Kobylkin says.
He notes that in the future China will be one of the long-term partners in consumption of Russian gas. According to him, Yamal has huge potential for natural gas reserves. As for release of carbon dioxide in consumption of natural gas, there are already examples of use of liquefied gas without carbon in the world, that is, in the future it is planned to switch to low-carbon liquefied gas.
The governor of Yamal Dmitry Artyukhov in his report notes that Yamal and gas are the single entity.
“We see a clear situation till 2035. Today we are actively developing production of liquefied gas, the enterprises appeared – “Yamal LNG”, “Yamal LNG 2”. It is probably symbolic that the first liquefied gas of Yamal on the first gas carrier was delivered to America. There are issues that require solution. Gas production in Nadym-Pur-Taz region: we are moving further to the North, but we also solve issues of falling production in existing extractive fields. Work on introduction of technological approaches takes place in this direction. I shall give an example. The company “Gazprom Neft” in Yamburgskoye field with one technological approach reached plus 25 million tonnes of oil per year”, said Dmitry Artyukhov.
The head of the region notes that Yamal will maintain its share of gas in the world market. New pipeline routes to Asian regions are being built for this purpose.
At the end of his speech Dmitry Artyukhov promised to keep holding the bar of extraction after 2035.
