ST. PETERSBURG, October 22 (Itar-Tass) — Gazprom will provide 500 million roubles to ensure gas supplies to the Leningrad region in 2012, the giant’s deputy board chairman Valery Golubev said on Saturday.
The region’s investments for supplying gas to settlements and consumers will amount to about 600 million roubles, he said.
According to Golubev, the optimal level of gas supplies to the Leningrad region is of 85 percent. At present, the region exceeds the average performance among cities and large settlements (69.9 percent and 73.9 percent respectively). But the region lags the rural area, he added.
This year nine inter-settlement gas pipelines are being built in the Leningrad region. Thus, gas will be supplied to 14 settlements, including four military towns.
In addition, Gazprom is planning to put into operation a new gas pipeline branch to the town of Slantsy. A gas pipeline is also being built for the Holy Trinity monastery of St. Alexander Svirsky.
According to the Leningrad region vice-governor, Nikolai Pasyada, over the five years Gazprom constructed over 200 kilometres of inter-settlement gas pipelines and over 1000 kilometres of gas distribution pipelines. Gas supply has provided to over 15,000 apartments and private houses, and about 30 boiler rooms, the vice-governor said.
