Important Changes in Russian Gas Business Environment

Price of Central Asian Gas

  • In 2005, Turkmenistan wants to raise the price of its gas from $44 to $60/mcm (at the Turkmenistan border).

    • This would result in the price of about $77/mcm at the Russian border.

  • The 2004 price of about $60/mcm at the Russia-Kazakhstan border is roughly equal to the cost of new Bovanenkovo (Yamal) gas delivered to the same area.

    • Gas from currently producing fields of West Siberia can be delivered to Russia-Kazakhstan border at a much lower cost.

  • Gazprom is unlikely to find an immediate substitution for the Turkmenistan gas.

    • The super-giant Zapolyarnoe field has already reached its plateau production level of 285 mmcm/day (or 100 bcmy).

    • Production of other major fields is declining.

    • The next super-giant field - Bovanenkovo - will not start production before 2009.

    • Gas consumption in Russia, FSU and Europe is growing.

    • The timing of Turkmenistan's move indicates it may have been caused by the above mentioned factors.

  • The Turkmenistan price hike opens opportunities for Russian independent gas producers.

    • It would require cooperation from Gazprom, which is the major problem for independents now.
