Gazprom: Plans, Risks, Prospects (Russian Version)

The year 2009 has indeed been difficult for the Russian gas monopoly.

For the first time, the Aleksey Miller team have found themselves facing a substantial decline in earnings and a deficit of resources. At the same time, Gazprom remains among the key instruments of government policy for infrastructure development and investment expenditure which support the national industry.

Fluctuating demand for gas and a decline in prices in Europe coincided with a “gas war” with Ukraine, growing controversies with the European Union, and a conflict with Turkmenistan. Indeed, the gas consumption correction provided Gazprom with an unexpected respite prior to commissioning the new gas province on Yamal, without which a serious deficit of gas would be quite probable in just a few years.
The question is what use the gas corporation will make of it.

In a new report you will find detailed answers to the following questions:

Gazprom in a circle of problems
- A Decline in export revenue, a deficit of investment resources, and the need for large-scale investment in the upstream segment

- Real production prospects for Yamal, Shtokman, Sakhalin, and Eastern Siberia
Gazprom in search of resources

- The conflict with Turkmenistan and prospects for patching up holes in the gas balance with the help of Central Asian and Azerbaijani gas

- The Third Legislative Package and the need to adjust Russian plans
