Since the beginning of this year:
87 inter-settlement gas pipelines have been built with their total length exceeding 1,500 km
which provided the possibility of gas grid connection for over 58,000 households and apartments (89 % of the 2021 target indicator) and 184 boiler houses (97 % of the target indicator) in 178 localities
In July 2021, the Russian Government appointed Gazprom Gazifikatsiya as the Single operator of gas infrastructure expansion.
The Single operator will build gas pipeline branches, gas distribution stations, inter-settlement gas pipelines and gas distribution networks up to the boundaries of land plots,.
By 2023, additional gas infrastructure expansion shall be completed in the country, i.e. gas pipelines shall be laid up to the boundaries of households and gardeners' non-commercial partnerships that are not connected to gas, but are situated within localities already covered by the gas grid, provided that these activities do not cause the need to expand the flowrate of gas distribution stations.
Said additional gas infrastructure expansion shall not require any payments from the population.
