Ulan Bator, October 25 - Neftegaz.RU. With the Soyuz Vostok gas pipeline, Russia's Power of Siberia 2 gas pipeline will extend through Mongolia, and its export capacity might become more than 1.3 times higher than that of Power of Siberia
This will allow us to export large amounts of gas from Western Siberia not only westward but also eastward.

A working meeting between Gazprom and the Mongolian Government on the implementation of the MoU regarding the project for pipeline gas supplies from Russia to China across Mongolia took place in the capital of Mongolia.

The meeting was headed by Vitaly Markelov, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Sainbuyan Amarsaikhan, Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia.

Thus far, Mongolian contractors have completed in due time the required on-site surveys, engineering & environmental mapping, and route analysis for the gas pipeline, including its crossing points with the existing utilities.

Mongolia has already taken a number of measures to provide the project with state support.
These include:
  • quotas for the hiring of foreign labor by the Gazoprovod Soyuz Vostok special-purpose vehicle
  • the possibilities of using the regulatory frameworks of Russia and Gazprom during design and construction
  • the government has made a decision in principle to reserve land plots for the facilities of the gas pipeline
The meeting participants agreed upon the routing plan proposed by the special-purpose vehicle for use during the development of the feasibility study.

In 2019, Gazprom and Mongolia signed a MOU, the document provides for a joint assessment of the feasibility of the project for pipeline gas supplies from Russia to China across Mongolia.

In April 2021, the feasibility analysis regarding the construction project for the Soyuz Vostok gas trunkline was approved.
This ambitious project is meant to provide supplies of Russian gas across Mongolia and into China.
