The State Duma of the Russian Federation proposed to increase gas tariffs in the domestic market due to Gazprom’s losses in foreign trade. The initiative should not affect the population and enterprises of housing and communal services, said State Duma deputy from KhMAO Pavel Zavalny.
“It would be relevant to change the pricing of gas for all consumers, except for the population and housing and communal services. The new principles could include the “take or pay” rule, on the basis of which export contracts were previously concluded, ”Lenta.ru reports the opinion of Pavel Zavalny.

Also, the state program for accelerated gasification in the regions of Russia through liquefied natural gas, the expansion of the use of gas motor fuel and the development of the petrochemical industry can also be a way out.
Earlier, URA.RU said that they plan to increase the number of oil and gas production sites in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. This is done to attract new investors to the region.
