Russia still interested in Kyrgyzstan’s energy sector


Russia has not ruled out the possibility of building a hydroelectric power plant in Kyrgyzstan, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said at the 6th Russian-Kyrgyz interregional conference in Bishkek on December 15, 2017.

Russia had begun several hydropower projects in Kyrgyzstan, but not everything turned out as planned at the first stage, Dvorkovich said. With the emergence of sufficient markets under acceptable conditions, Russia will be able to resume the implementation of those projects, he said.

The Upper Naryn hydropower plants (HPPs) cascade is not the only promising project for selling electricity to other countries, Dvorkovich added

According to Arkady Dvorkovich, Russia is planning to implement not only electricity projects but also investment projects in the oil and gas sector in Kyrgyzstan.

Russian oil companies are interested in developing and modernizing processing facilities in Kyrgyzstan, he said.

In 2018, Russia is ready to supply about 1 million tons of oil and oil products duty-free to Kyrgyzstan, Dvorkovich said.

Last year, the State Duma of Russia ratified the agreement between Russia and Kyrgyzstan on duty-free supplies of crude oil and finished petroleum products to the country.
