  • North European Gas Pipeline as a unique energy bridge to Europe
    North European Gas Pipeline (NEGP) will open a principally new export route for Russian gas, directly connecting Russia and European gas market without any mediators. The pipeline consists of two onshore and one offshore sections. Onshore section will run from the town of Gryazovets (Vologda Oblast) to Portovaya Bay near Vyborg (Leningrad Oblast). This 917 km long section is already under construction and will connect NEGP with Unified Russian Gas Supply System. The offshore section of pipeline will run from Portovaya Bay along the bottom of the Baltic Sea to Greifswald Bay in Germany, for a total length of 1,200 km. Further, it will again run onshore on German territory. NEGP is a new energy bridge to Europe with growing energy demand, whereas gas is ecologically friendly fuel, consumption of which is increasing year by year. The first leg of pipeline with capacity of 27.5 bcm per year is planned to be brought into operation in 2010; the launch of the second leg will double the NEGP capacity.

Ocean and shelf exploration

  • The hard-to-reach arctic shelf
    Russian Federation holds the world largest stock of natural gas and eighth-largest oil reserves. Also, Russia is occupying position of a major world gas exporter and second major oil exporter. Russia provides about 30% of the world gas production. Explored reserves of the «blue-sky fuel» are about 48 trillion m3 and theirs lion’s share is concentrated in Western Siberia. Deposits with total of 4 trillion m3 of gas were found on the Northern seas shelf; approximately the same amount is concentrated in the Eastern Siberia and Far East. Further exploration works with greatest probability will lead to discovery of new rich hydrocarbon deposits.
