The 8th SKOLKOVO Gas dialogue was held
The SKOLKOVO Moscow school of management held its eighth SKOLKOVO Gas dialogue on November 25. The theme of the event was " Low-and medium-tonnage LNG in Russia. Regional series". The meeting was attended by representatives Of the National LNG Association, government authorities, relevant companies and the expert community.
During the discussion, the participants discussed the challenges and opportunities for the production of low-and medium-tonnage liquefied natural gas in Russia, including in the Baltic sea, the Arctic and other regions. Such issues as the role of LNG in increasing flexibility and competition in gas markets, assessment of the impact of the requirements of the Russian legal and regulatory framework on the effectiveness of investment projects, prospects for the export of small and medium - tonnage LNG and the potential of domestic markets, as well as other important topics for the industry were discussed.
The discussion, as in the previous gas dialogues, was based on the principle of Chatham House, which involves the non-disclosure of the specific content of the statements of the participants without their consent, and therefore allows you to create an atmosphere of maximum effective communication during the discussion of fundamentally important industry issues.
From the energy Centre of Moscow school of management SKOLKOVO Director of energy Centre Tatiana Mitrova, head of the scientific working group on small and medium LNG at the Center of energy Alexander Klimentyev, analyst, gas energy Centre Sergey Kapitonov and other experts, and representatives of the energy Ministry, administration of the Chukotka Autonomous district, the National chamber of engineers of the companies "Gazprom" "Arkhangelsk LNG, Gazprom export", "GIPRONIIGAZ-MP", "kriogaz", "NOVATEK", "NOVOKHIM", "Sibir-Energo", "Sitek", The National Association of LNG.
"There are a lot of interesting LNG projects in Russia now, some of them were presented directly by their developers. But so far, there are many barriers to their implementation, primarily regulatory ones, which significantly hamper the implementation of the significant, in our opinion, potential of the small – and medium - tonnage LNG industry in Russia. This situation can and should be changed", – summed up the discussion Director of the energy Center of the Moscow school of management SKOLKOVO Tatiana Mitrova.
Recall that the "Gas dialogue" within the Energy club of the SKOLKOVO business school began its work in 2017. The purpose of this initiative is to ensure regular interaction between companies working in the fuel and energy sector, public authorities and the expert community to discuss the strategic prospects for the development of the Russian gas industry.
