During the joint meeting, they discussed the parameters of gasification and pre-gasification, the plans of the entities for the gas supply and instructions were given to simplify the process of connecting gas for the population.
On the territory of the absolute majority of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, a large-scale program of gasification and pre-gasification of the population is already underway in new parameters. As of today, the work of special headquarters for gasification has started in 66 regions of the country, 17 more subjects will join them, in which the creation of such headquarters is nearing completion, said Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak during a joint discussion of the processes of gasification and pre-gasification of Russian regions with the Secretary of the General Council of the United Russia party »Andrey Turchak.
“In 66 regions of Russia, their regional headquarters for gasification have already been organized, 17 regions are still in the process of agreeing on the composition of the headquarters. At the same time, some of the subjects are already conducting an application campaign for pre-gasification, as of today, more than 97 thousand applications have been submitted, more than 2 thousand application points have been organized in the context of each region, ”the Deputy Prime Minister said during the discussion.
The acceleration of the gasification program for the country’s population proposed by United Russia, the holding of gasification by the end of 2022 was supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin and indicated in the Address to the Federal Assembly, recalled Alexander Novak. “This is a huge work that needs to be coordinated together with United Russia, the constituent entities of the country, which must ensure the implementation of the program together with gas distribution organizations. For the gasification of the population, it is necessary to mobilize all resources – both personnel and material and technical, to ensure the availability of domestic equipment. We have created special monitoring systems for all types of equipment, we will provide support to those entities where there will be a need for equipment. In addition, it is important to monitor the average cost of gasification, so that there is no overstatement of prices, ”the Deputy Prime Minister emphasized.
For the constant coordination of work, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin previously created a special project “Social Gasification”, operating under the Coordination Center under the Government of the Russian Federation. Thanks to the well-coordinated work of a number of federal executive bodies, subjects and deputies, a number of amendments to the legislation have already been timely adopted, which significantly accelerated the process of gasification in the regions of the country, the Deputy Prime Minister noted.
“We are grateful to the United Russia party, which promptly supported amendments to legislation that simplify the construction of infrastructure and preparation of documents. In addition to the federal law, amendments were also made to the construction and reconstruction of gas pipelines with a pressure of up to 12 atmospheres, which makes it possible to reduce the construction time by almost six months. Now we are jointly preparing a number of other changes to reduce connection times and simplify the construction of gas pipelines through complex sections. In addition, a government decree on connection is being prepared, where the application mechanism is clearly spelled out. We expect the amendments to come into force in August, ”said Alexander Novak.
At the same time, the most important part of the gasification process remains the organization of constant informing of the population about participation in the pre-gasification program, including through special hot lines, the Deputy Prime Minister continued. It is already becoming possible to apply for gas connection through special points for accepting applications that are opening in a number of regions of the country. “They have the opportunity not only to conclude a comprehensive contract, but also to choose equipment. We have given a corresponding task within the federal headquarters so that all regional headquarters provide for such a possibility. As for carrying gas inside the site, its cost will also be regulated by the state, provided that the contract for laying the gas pipeline is concluded with the gas distribution company. In fact, today a person already has the opportunity to calculate the cost and type of gas connection, ”he added.
The updated parameters for gas transmission will also apply when gas is transported within the framework of the gasification program, that is, in cases where gas has not yet been supplied to a settlement, stressed Alexander Novak. “The President instructed to ensure full gasification of the country by 2030. At present, all constituent entities of the Russian Federation are engaged in updating their own fuel energy balances, which will determine from which sources heat and water supply to households will be provided. At the same time, it is also important to make a decision on the development of the network infrastructure in those regions where there is no gas yet, ”stressed Alexander Novak.
