Independent gas companies (that are not part of state-controlled Gazprom and have access to the unified gas supply system) are playing an increasingly significant part in the production and supply of gas in Russia.

Today the suppliers of one-fifth of the gas deliveries in the federation, the independent sector possesses the greatest potential for growth: a solid resource base, superior technology and management hardened by obstacles and political forces to Russian-style market realities. No one is better suited for this next phase of gas industry development.

The Independent Gas Producers in Russia elucidates the most important aspects of the Russian independent gas-producing sector within a large, complex setting. The study provides:
  • description of the independent sector within the gas industry as a whole, including the regulatory environment and the role of Gazprom
  • analysis of the resource base on which the Russian gas market rests with details of regional holdings and licenses
  • domestic and foreign demands for gas, including Central Asian gas suppliers and former Soviet Union purchasers and the geography of deliveries
  • recent and forecasted production, pricing, sales and delivery of gas
The Independent Gas Producers in Russia offers a comprehensive study of the factors affecting supply and demand in the Russian gas market and used these factors to forecast scenarios for the independent sector through 2010 and in some cases, 2015.

The Independent Gas Producers in Russia
also provides in-depth analyses of six independent gas producers:

Gas companies:

  • Northgas
  • NOVATEK
Vertically integrated oil companies:
  • LUKOIL
  • Rosneft
  • Surgutneftegaz
  • TNK-BP
The study reviews performance data for these companies from 2002 through 2004 or 2005, examines impediments and opportunities for each and forecasts the companies’ growth through 2010 or 2015.

The study is an essential analytical support tool for:
  • energy policy-makers
  • gas producers
  • utilities and other gas consumers
  • transportation, distribution and trading companies
  • gas downstream companies
  • banks and investment organizations
  • contractors and equipment suppliers
