The Power of Siberia pipeline is an important factor for the rapprochement between Moscow and Beijing

Russian President Vladimir Putin in a teleconference with Chinese leader XI Jinping launched the first gas supplies through the pipeline "power of Siberia", which will act as a new energy source for China. For Russia, the launch of the gas pipeline will reduce dependence on the European market. As Putin put it, the Chinese partners are not easy negotiators, but despite this we managed to reach optimal agreements.

A large state-owned energy company, Gazprom, will manage the Russian section of the pipeline, which is 3,000 kilometers long. In 2014, an agreement worth $400 billion was signed with the Chinese national oil and gas enterprise. In accordance with the terms of the agreement, 38 billion cubic meters of gas will be supplied annually to China over the next thirty years. The Chinese agreement is the largest agreement in Gazprom's portfolio. But even at the moment to assess its profitability is quite difficult.

According to Vladimir Putin's press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, the project with the opening of the gas pipeline will help to improve the level of development of many Russian regions located along the Route "power of Siberia". These events give grounds to talk about strengthening cooperation between Russia and China, which is happening against the background of the Sino-American trade war and the sanctions imposed by the European Union and the United States against Russia.

Over time, it is planned to extend the Chinese part of the pipeline by 5 thousand kilometers. To date, most of the gas exports from Russia are sent to Europe from the Arctic in transit through Ukraine. But these supplies can be described as unreliable due to constant conflicts of a political nature. Limited trade with European countries after the imposition of sanctions gave impetus to the Kremlin to expand trade activities in the Eastern direction. Beijing, due to the deterioration of international relations with Washington, is also interested in cooperation with Moscow.


Such news regarding economic changes in China affected the value of black gold. The index of business activity in the manufacturing sector rose to 51.8. The price of oil after Friday's collapse began to rise again. The price of February futures rose to $ 61.18 per barrel.

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.!
