The Russian company Tatneft is launching a new project related to the use of liquefied natural gas as a fuel in automotive transport.
Russia’s Gazprom has started building a giant natural gas and LNG production complex in the Baltic port of Ust-Luga.
The State Department has notified in a report to Congress that it will not impose sanctions on the company overseeing the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia to Germany.
Recent months have been a time of intense Russian gas imports to Romania. From the beginning of January to 11 May, the country purchased 1.1 bcm of “blue fuel” from that pipeline.
In the first quarter of this year, Turkey became the second largest recipient of Russian gas, Gazprom reported.
The United States became the first largest supplier of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the European market in the first quarter of 2021, overtaking Qatar.
“European countries are most interested in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, and the project is still planned to be completed in 2021,” Russian Energy Minister Nikolai Shulginov said.
In the first three months of this year, Gazprom earned $9.59 billion on gas exports. This is 32.2% more than in the same period of 2020.
With the current level of production of energy resources in Russia, oil reserves are enough for 59 years and gas reserves for 103 years, said Russian Minister of Natural Resources and Ecology Alexander Kozlov.
Onboard the three vessels responsible for the construction of Baltic Pipe, final preparations are being made before they set sail and begin laying the gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea.
