Until 2035, the volume of liquefied natural gas (LNG) production in Russia may almost triple and reach 140 million tons. This target value is laid down in the long-term program for the development of LNG production, approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.


From the opening remarks by Mikhail Mishustin at an operational meeting with the Deputy Prime Ministers, March 22, 2021

The document presents various activities aimed at increasing the competitiveness of the industry. In particular, it is proposed to equalize the conditions of state support for LNG projects implemented in the same climatic zones, to conduct regular monitoring of large-scale production facilities under construction. Incentives will also be developed for exploration in the Arctic, which is expected to allow new fields to be discovered.

The most important precondition for development will be the expansion of the use of Russian technologies. We are talking about equipment designed for gas liquefaction and purification, special compressors, cryogenic units, autonomous LNG energy complexes and integrated control systems. Russian companies that can produce such equipment will be offered government support measures.

Another area of ​​work is low-tonnage LNG production. The implementation of projects in this area will accelerate the gasification of regions and provide energy to facilities located far from the main gas pipelines.

In general, the implementation of the program will help unlock the resource potential of Yamal, Gydan and the north of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, as well as, in the long term, the Arctic shelf, attract new investors and increase the export of Russian LNG. This, in turn, will create thousands of jobs and improve local living standards.

The document will be published.
