Domestic market of energy sources

Domestic market of energy sources

Supplies to the domestic market have always been considered less profitable compared to exports. However, the situation is gradually changing.

Gas producers have long been insisting on liberalization of the gas market based on the principle of equal profitability of exports and supplies to domestic consumers.

The latter obviously impede implementation of this idea as much as they can. Their efforts were facilitated by the presidential elections that did not delay introduction of the net back method on the gas market but also froze prices of oil products.

The question is how the situation will develop. Moreover, the number of those supporting growth in gas prices is growing. For instance, the finance ministry does not mind it provided that all additional revenues of gas producers are taken away from them in the form of taxes. Putin is to make the final decision – he is facing a rather complicated task. It is necessary to take into account different interests of gas producers, Russian industrialists, as well as the budget and the finance ministry.

The report elaborates on the following issues:

  • Domestic gas market: problem of liberalization of prices and access to pipeline system
