Khabarovsk hosted the celebrations dedicated to welding the first joint of the Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok gas transmission system (GTS).

Taking part in the ceremony were Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation; Viktor Ishaev, Plenipotentiary Presidential Representative in the Far Eastern Federal District; Alexander Ananenkov, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee; and Vyacheslav Shport, Governor of the Khabarovsk Krai. “This day will go down in the Russian gas industry history. Welding of the first joint of the Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok GTS marks the startup of the system for gas supply to Eastern Russia.

As part of the Government-backed Eastern Gas Program, Gazprom is pursuing ambitious goals of creating new gas centers. They are planned to produce some 150 billion cubic meters of gas by 2020. This figure is comparable to the annual volume of Russian gas exports beyond FSU. Gas production in Eastern Russia should be supported with the appropriate gas transmission facilities.

The national economy has faced difficulties due to the global financial and economic crisis, and a demand drop. However, crises come and go. Later on, there will be an upsurge in demand, especially for energy carriers. We must be ready for that and should not give up the proposed gas industry development plans,” said Alexander Ananenkov.
