The agreements have already been signed and starting from January, gas is supplied to OOO Tyumenregiongas and OOO Kurganregiongas — regional distribution subsidiaries of OOO «Mezhregiongas». 1.1 billion cubic metres will be delivered to OOO «Tyumenregiongas»» and OOO «Kurganregiongas» is and 0.67 bcm accordingly which constitutes 88% and 60% of the total volume sold by these companies in their regions.
Thus, Novatek jointly with Gazprom supplies gas at regulated prices to the Russian consumers. At the same time it is a move towards equal conditions for all of the gas market participants. In future the company counts on a possibility to export gas and thus compensate the low prices of the internal market.
