Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak announced that Russia has reduced gas exports to Europe and increased them to China.
And the TASS news agency quoted Novak as saying: Russian gas production decreased last year by 11.66 percent to 673.8 billion cubic meters, while exports fell by 25.1 percent to 184.4 billion cubic meters, explaining that this is due to European countries abandoning the purchase of Russian gas, in addition to sabotage. Which affected the “Northern Stream 1 and 2” pipelines, which pump gas from Russia to Germany through the bottom of the Baltic.
Novak pointed out that Russian gas supplies to China have increased significantly over the past year, as supplies through the "Power of Siberia" pipeline increased by 48 percent and reached their highest level at 15.4 billion cubic meters.
The Russian Deputy Prime Minister stated that his country is continuing the planned investment in the gas fields, as a number of fields have been launched, and work is also being done on the technological development of the gas industry, mainly on the establishment of liquefaction centers.
