Russia’s underground gas deposits are 81 percent full

Moscow, Jul 22 (Prensa Latina) Russian Energy Minister Nikolay Shulguinov confirmed to President Vladimir Putin that the country's underground liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage facilities are 81 percent full.

“We do not have any problems with the filling of underground reserves, which are currently at 81 percent. One hundred percent will be reached in November,” the minister explained as he briefed the president on preparations for the autumn/winter period.

Shulguinov told Putin, according to the Kremlin’s website, that the Russian gas group Gazprom reported that a record 72.662 billion cubic meters of LNG will be stored in underground facilities for the winter.

Shulguinov also briefed the head of State about the progress of hard coal (bituminous coal) mining, which is approximately at the same level as in the previous year.

In this regard, the minister explained to Putin that Russia could control 25 percent of the world hard coal market by 2050 and remain among the three largest exporters of that fuel.
