The company has launched a competition on conducting a “complex analysis and assessment of the potential lowering of greenhouse gas emissions and polluting substances at sites of the programme of developing gas supplies and expansion of the gas network in Russian regions for the period 2021-2025 – while taking account of prospects for further development of the gas network up until 2035”.
The competition will be completed in November and an analysis completed within a year. Its results are to be made public in October 2022. A budget of 25.832 million roubles ($364,400) has been allocated to the research.
Gazprom is taking on the task of proceeding with a large-scale expansion of the gas supply network by 2030 without creating any additional costs for consumers. The technically possible objective of the expansion of the network amounts to 83 % (as of 2020, the level of gas service in the country totalled 71.4 %). The main premise in proceeding with the expansion is to provide consumers with environmentally clean, inexpensive energy.
