Russia does not set the Asian markets against the West’s, Russian Vice-Premier Arkady Dvorkovich said at Turkmenistan Gas Congress on Wednesday.
“The development of the ‘eastern vector’ and energy security and stability are our priorities,” he said.
As one of the major producing countries Russia should realise the partners’ plans and gas projects, as well as the situation on the gas market, Dvorkovich said.
At the same time, he said Russia would always a reliable gas supplier to Europe and Asia.
Gas demand will increase by 2.5 times by 2035 and reach one trillion cubic metres per year, the Russian Economic Development Ministry says.
Russia is ready to contribute to inviting Turkmenistan to the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) to allow its representatives to take part in a ministerial meeting due to be held in Qatar in November 2014, Dvorkovich said.
“Turkmenistan’s participation in the gas exporting forum can benefit the Central Asian republic,” he said.
All three countries - Afghanistan, Pakistan and India - became official buyers of Turkmen gas. In May 2012 the Pakistani company Inter State Gas System Limited and the Indian company GAIL Limited signed the relevant agreements with the Turkmen gas concern.
The creation of the consortium TAPI Ltd will be a next stage, the participants in the meeting noted. The committee’s meeting has taken the decisions to draft constituent documents and register the consortium.
The basic document to implement the project is the Ashgabat interstate agreement between the countries.
The construction is planned to complete in 2018. Turkmenistan proposes to deliver 33 billion cubic metres of gas annually. Natural gas will be supplied to China, Russia and Iran.
