Prospects

The company’s main short-term objective is linked to the implementation of the Eastern Gas Program and the development of the Irkutsk gas production center, which together with the Yakutia gas production center serves as the resource base for the Power of Siberia megaproject.

The development of the Irkutsk gas production center and the implementation of the Power of Siberia project make the Irkutsk Region one of Russia’s key gas producing regions. This will allow for the creation of thousands of modern and high-tech jobs in the region, mostly for the locals. It should be highlighted that the project will bring economic benefit to the area thanks to the increase in the tax revenues paid to the regional and local budgets, creation of a favorable investment environment, implementation of local infrastructure projects, construction of new production facilities, and modernization of existing ones. It will also open the door to greater opportunities for the development of the industry, professional education, social and economic partnership, transport infrastructure and services sector. The project will accelerate new industrialization processes, give a strong impetus to the social and economic development, and improve the quality of life in the Irkutsk Region.
