Gazprom has filled the Power of Siberia gas pipeline, everything is ready for gas supplies to China

The moment is approaching rapidly when the Power of Siberia gas pipeline starts supplying natural gas from fields in Russia to neighboring China.

As follows from the message TASS, Gazprom completed one of the important stages of preparation for commissioning the Power of Siberia: gas produced in the Chayandinskoye field in Yakutia filled the gas pipeline up to the border gas metering station in the Blagoveshchensk area.

The next stage of preparation will be filling with gas a section of the gas pipeline located at the cross-border crossing through the Amur.

The additional volume of gas that is constantly in the pipeline, experts call "technical" or "fuel". It is necessary in order to ensure the operation of gas pumping stations and to ensure uninterrupted transit of “blue fuel” through pipes.

Recall that the Power of Siberia gas pipeline is a joint project of the Russian Gazprom and the Chinese company CNPC and is designed to deliver gas from Yakutia to the Primorsky Territory of Russia and the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, primarily China.

The ceremony of connecting the first link, which marked the beginning of the construction of the gas pipeline, took place on September 1, 2014.
The launch of the Power of Siberia is scheduled for December 1, 2019.

    We will rejoice when we compare prices. So, electricity is sold to China at 1 RUB 50 kop for 1 kWh. And how much do you pay at home?

      Daily rate 2,92 rubles, nightly 1,44 rubles. If you buy as much as China, maybe they will give you a discount? belay
      1. 1, 50 - wholesale price, and how much do the Chinese pay?

      The gas price will be low for some time. I dealt with this issue, rummaged through a bunch of material and I will say briefly. Pipeline construction is a lot of money, we agreed with China on lending to construction. The principal amount of the loan is paid in the usual manner, there is nothing complicated here, but interest on the loan will be paid by supplying gas at a low rate, because the loan was issued at low interest rates. As they say, bash on bash, we give you a loan at low interest rates, you supply us with gas for a certain period at a low price.

      Pricing in the electric power industry is a rather complicated topic; your question requires clarification: wholesale; a place; exact date and time.

    The economy is for the people, not the people for the economy. If the government does everything right in the economy, then the well-being of the people should improve. And we have? Let's see how the tariffs for everything will grow with this Power of Siberia! And electricity is just an example, so that some will get it faster.
