Alexey Miller's column

Speech by Alexey Miller at “Gas as an Effective Tool for Achieving the Environmental Targets of the Global Economy” Panel Session held as part of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum

“Gas is the cleanest fossil fuel. Gas reserves are abundant and available. Crucially, we have highly advanced technologies for gas production, transportation and storage. And the gas business is highly profitable.

When we talk about the growing role of gas in the global energy mix, as well as its increasing share, we mean that this growth will stem primarily from power generation and transport. And when it comes to the advantages of natural gas as a fossil fuel, it should be clear that gas has its own strengths in each of these sectors.”
