Russia will have to substantially diversify its energy export, RF Premier Mikhail Mishustin said at a recent government meeting to discuss energy industry development, the RF Government press office reports.
He suggested efforts should be made to channel energy exports to the Asia Pacific region while maintaining trade with the ‘friendly’ countries via the channels already in use.
‘In future, it is important to provide for a quick change of energy export floes from West to East and vice versa, e.g. by combining the Europe-oriented gas pipeline system with the Power of Siberia and Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok pipeline projects, by making a sort of link that will allow of flexibly reacting to price conditions,’ the government press office quotes Mishustin as saying.
