Russia: Gazprom says aiming to increase long-term exports by 20 percent

MOSCOW. Nov 5 (Interfax) - Gazprom aims during the period to 2010 to increase gas exports under long-term and government-to-government contracts by 20%.
  Gazprom will be producing about 100 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas annually at new fields by that time. Total Russian gas production, including by independent producers, should be 655 bcm, Vladimir Rezunenko, a Gazprom executive, told the second international conference on Russian and CIS hydrocarbon exports.
  The most promising new fields will be located on the Yamal Peninsula and in Eastern Siberia, the Far East and offshore in the Kara and Barents seas.
  Rezunenko said gas produced at the new fields would cost the end consumer in Russia more than it does today, because the fields in question are a long way from established infrastructure and their reserves are harder to access.
  Gazprom will need more than 21,000 km of large-diameter trunk pipeline tubes to expand gas supplies to Russia and abroad, build new submarine pipelines and links with existing pipeline networks by 2020. The company will also have to replace 23,000 km of existing pipelines and pipeline branches and modernize 25,000 megawatts of gas pumping equipment. All of this will require a considerable amount of investment, Rezunenko remarked.
  Gazprom is currently delivering two major pipeline projects - the Yamal-Europe route and the Blue Stream project for a pipeline from Russia to Turkey. The North Europe pipeline project is on the drawing board.

Russia's Gazprom considering 7 percent production cut over pricing issue

[FBIS Transcribed Text]


MOSCOW. Nov 1 (Interfax) - Russian gas giant Gazprom is considering the possibility of reducing gas production 7% to increase efficiency if tariffs are not raised.
  A source close to the company's board said that directors on Thursday discussed Gazprom's development strategy.
  Gazprom considers it necessary to raise gas tariffs 40% for industrial consumers and 20% for the population. This will enable the company to raise 188 billion rubles in investment to sustain output at 530 billion cubic meters.
  If tariffs cannot be raised, Gazprom proposes the government lower output targets from 530 billion to 490 billion - 500 billion cubic meters a year. This will enable Gazprom to increase its efficiency by removing the need to raise a significant volume of investment.
  Gazprom would also like to support its investment program with the sale of 10 billion cubic meters of gas at free prices next year (3.5% of supplies to the domestic market). It is planned that the gas distribution company Mezhregiongaz will continue to hold gas auctions, at which the market price is an average of 35% higher than that set by the government.
  The company could receive an additional $100 million in revenue from the sale of 10 billion cubic meters of gas, Valery Nesterov, an analyst with Troika Dialog, has said. A considerable volume of funds could also be raised from the rise in export prices.
  The Gazprom budget envisages the export price in 2003 at $97 per 1,000 cubic meters, while analysts expect the price to be $100-110.

  MOSCOW. Oct 30 (Interfax) - A Russian minister promised on Wednesday that the government will not take too long to liberalize the market for shares in Russian natural gas monopoly Gazprom.
  "Liberalization of the Gazprom share market is necessary, only it's a question of time," Economic Development and Trade Minister German Gref told a meeting in Moscow.
  He said the Cabinet was debating the matter currently. "I won't name any concrete dates now, but I don't think this process is being dragged out," he said.
  In speaking about an anticipated restructuring of Gazprom, he said Russia should put an end to price discrepancy on its home market, among other things cross subsidizing should be ended.
  He also said the consideration by the Cabinet of a proposed energy strategy had been scheduled for this week, but had been put off as the draft document needed amendment.
  He said the ratio between export duties on crude oil and oil products was one of the points to be amended.
