Analyst of the National Energy Security Fund (FNEB) Igor Yushkov gave his assessment of the prospects Russia on the gas market in the coming year. According to him, the country will be able to maintain its status as one of the major players in the market. Yushkov spoke about this in an interview for Lenta.ru.
At the same time, the analyst said that Russia has lost its position as the largest exporter of blue fuel. Thus, the share of Russian gas in the European market has already decreased from 34% to 8%. If earlier Russia exported to Europe more than 155 billion cubic meters, then at the moment expect deliveries in the amount of 30-40 billion cubic meters gas.
There are also difficulties in the reorientation of gas flows to other markets. This is a rather lengthy process, since it requires either the construction of new gas pipelines or the construction of special gas liquefaction plants, as well as the preliminary development of appropriate technologies.
Earlier, on the air of the Public News Service, a discussion took place between economist Vasily Koltashov and a member of the public council under the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation Viktor Khaikov. The experts discussed the main prospects and problems of Russia’s gas policy for 2023. Details see material.
