MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich believes that Russian gas exporters should be more flexible on the European market.
“We should closely follow the march of events and negotiate with our partners in order to ensure a stable place for ourselves in all segments of the European market,” Dvorkovich said. “The gas market is a priority for us. We should be more flexible from that standpoint of behavior on that market. It is getting ever more dynamic.”
“The role of long-term contracts remains very serious. For this reason an ever greater part of it, including the implementation of our long-term projects, involves considerable risks. But, nevertheless, at the expense of European instability on the Asian markets we may gain a stable niche on the gas market.”
As he dwelt on the results of last year, Dvorkovich recalled that Russia tapped a number of gas fields, including Bovanenkovskoye. The Yamal project entered the active phase.
