Gazprom sets two new records for Russian UGS facilities

Following the dramatic reduction in Europe's consumption of Russian gas, Gazprom has focused on its own infrastructure and domestic gas production, marketing and storage industry. Thus, according to the holding's report published on the company's official telegram channel, the operating gas reserve in Russian underground storage facilities has reached a historical maximum of 72,662 billion cubic meters.

Of course, this became possible due to a decrease in exports to the EU countries, as well as due to cash technical the inability to compensate for foreign supplies by pumping gas to China or by liquefying raw materials and shipping LNG to buyers in India.

Therefore, Gazprom is setting new performance and efficiency records one after another in Russia itself. In addition to the historical maximum filling of UGSFs, the potential maximum daily productivity of Russian UGSFs also increased to 852,4 million cubic meters. This is also a new record in the history of the Russian gas industry, the company said.

As the holding's experts explain, the high level of reserves and productivity of Gazprom's UGSFs makes it possible to quickly raise the required volume of gas from storage facilities in the event of a sharp drop in temperature and an increase in consumption. But the report does not say why the gas will “rise” – gasification in Russia lags behind real demand, and Europe no longer buys raw materials from the Russian Federation in such a volume that such transcendental capacities and production are needed.

But anyway, according to the report, at the meeting of the holding's board it was noted that Gazprom's infrastructure as a whole is ready to handle peak loads and meet the increased winter demand for gas.

Against the backdrop of Europe's stubborn and unjustified refusal of Russian raw materials, it can be predicted with confidence that if the Russian monopolist does not dare to cut production, then new industry gas records will become the most common thing, since the infrastructure tuned for colossal deliveries abroad will simply fill even the largest local storage facilities. fuel.

      For example, Karelia and the Murmansk region, as well as the Arkhangelsk region, Komi, Perm Territory, etc., where boiler houses everywhere, with rare exceptions, operate on fuel oil or diesel, or coal ...
      It is also possible to completely gasify the Leningrad Region, where the level of gasification for 2021 was about 62%.
      It is also possible to further expand the gas supply to gas processing chemical plants, where the expansion of production is always limited by insufficient gas volume.

        This was discussed in June of this year. Fundamental agreement has been given. Instructions were also given to the Government and Gazprom to develop a project

        In this regard, A. Chibis asked V. Putin to support the topic of gasification of the Murmansk region.
        This issue was previously worked out at the level of the government of the Russian Federation, as a result, an official decision was made on gasification.

    By extracting gas from underground, Gazprom set a record for pumping gas back underground into underground gas storage facilities.
    An amazing record.
    No. Gazprom is not the people's property, it is the ruin of the people.
    Only Gazprom itself is enriched from its activities.

    Gas sales have been reduced. Now they hide it in storage. On the bubble of loss. We decided to raise domestic gas prices from December. Capitalism however! You can't do without profit!

      The gasification of the country, with the laying of operational pipelines to all unpowered areas, should have taken place long ago, and paid for from the profits of sales of the public property abroad. For some reason, there is no understanding that gas and oil, the property is not of Gazprom or Rosneft, but of the nation's wealth, issued for use by private companies and a large share of the profits should be returned to citizens, and not settle in different accounts of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, etc. ... On the people's property is being robbed by private individuals - that's how it goes.

    When Gazprom becomes a people's company (as it should be), then Gazprom news will interest me.
