Gas becomes part of Russian strategy

Wednesday State Duma approved the bill "On gas exportation" in the second and third reading. The document grants the exclusive right to sell gas abroad to the organization owning the unified gas supply system. In Russia such an owner is RAO "Gazprom". The right to export gas has also been conceded to those "Gazprom" subsidiaries which are 100-percent owned by the gas monopoly.

The right covers gas produced at all kinds of hydrocarbon deposits and transported both in a gaseous or liquefied state. "Gazprom" has supported the document. One of the authors of the bill, Valery Yazev, deputy of the "United Russia" party, has repeatedly called for recognizing gas as a strategic raw material and selling it exclusively under state control.
