Krasnodar, 8 October. The issue of natural gas supply of Kuban settlements was discussed during a meeting between Russia’s Minister of Energy Aleksandr Novak and Governor Veniamin Kondratiev held last week in Krasnodar. Mr. Kondratiev raised the issue of construction of incoming pipelines. Currently it is not unusual that the distribution networks have been built but local people cannot lay outlet pipes to their households because such work is too expensive. This hampers the course of installation of gas services in the region.
“Is it possible to design and build networks to households rather than settlements only?” Mr. Kondratiev asked Minister. “It is a matter of principal importance, because people are asking fair questions and are outraged at seeing that gas is being laid along their street but it never enters their homes.”
Mr. Novak said that this issue will be soon discussed at a special meeting held by Russian Prime Minister.
“The region has a high rate of gas supply, but it is necessary to move on to have the entire region connected to the network. I know that you have adopted the Gas Supply Program until 2030, and we are ready to assist you to further develop this issue,” he stated.
