    Austin wrote:Just an Oil Company? The True Extent of Russia’s Dependency on Oil and Gas

    Carnegie is a Trojan outfit that sponsors the liberast lunatic fringe as part of the US soft power projection.

    The above article is totally false in its numbers. As of 2013 the total contribution of the oil and gas industry
    to Russia's GDP was 13%. You can calculate this yourself. Take the total exports for that year of oil and
    gas in dollars and compare them to the nominal GDP in dollars. This is the actual injection of money
    from this industry into Russia's GDP. The part driven by domestic consumption from this industry is much smaller
    and does not affect the 13% much.

    The article would have you believe that any recycling of this oil and gas money in the Russian GDP has to
    be counted as part of that industry. This is ludicrous. By the same "logic" any recycling of money from
    any industry has to be counted as part of that industry. Since there is continual exchange of money between
    various industries that would mean you would multiple count their GDP contribution. And when you added
    them all up they would sum to several times the actual GDP. This is not how the GDP is calculated, including
    in the case of the USA, Canada, etc.

    The GDP only counts the instantaneous exchanges in the economy and does not accumulate exchanges and
    attribute them to their origin point.

    The Carnegie clown is just bitter that oil and gas exports and state rents bring in cash into Russia's economy and
    raise its standard of living. Anyone who prances around and claims that the oil price will never go up and will only
    go down is certifiably mentally retarded. And we also know that the ruble devaluation has cancelled out the impact
    of the oil price decline on Russia's GDP since Russia's GDP operates in rubles and not dollars.

    Carnegie? really?

    Well, lets see, where are their figures from?  Did you write those figures themselves?  I don't see anything regarding of where their data comes form.  And then it goes into contradiction of what has been said many times before, with evidence through other groups and I believe even official data.

    http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.PETR.RT.ZS

    According to the world bank, in 2013, it accounted as 14% of Russia's GDP. This has been posted on the Gas and oil dependency thread.

    So who are you going to believe? An official group like world bank, which is backed up by the awara group: http://www.awaragroup.com/putin-2000-2014-midterm-interim-results/

    or

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnegie_Group

    A group that clearly has an agenda?

    Russian Ministry of Economic Development against increase of tax burden on oil companies

    The Finance Ministry has come up with a proposal of changing the Mineral Extraction Tax (MET) calculation procedure

    MOSCOW, September 24. /TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Economic Development does not support increase of the tax burden on oil and gas companies in conditions of low prices for hydrocarbons, the press service of the ministry told TASS on Thursday.

    "Increase of the tax burden may result in companies’ investment cut, which will adversely affect related branches of industry," the press service said.

    The ministry is currently considering various options of adjusting the natural gas tariffs, particularly below 7.5%, the press service added.

    Final options of tariffs adjustment will be determined on the basis of the economic situation, the press service said.

    Looks like a bit of pressure on Turkey.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The gas from the proposed Nord Stream-2 pipeline could also be supplied to the southeastern European countries through the Baumgarten gas hub, CEO of Russian energy company Gazprom Alexei Miller said Thursday. "Yes, they could also be supplied [with gas] from Baumgarten," Miller told journalists, when asked the corresponding question.

    According to Miller, the Nord Stream-2’s main markets are Germany, France, Italy and the Baumgarten hub in Austria.

    In June, Gazprom announced plans to build two additional branches of the Nord Stream gas pipeline from Russia to Germany in a joint project with E.ON, Shell and OMV, with an estimated cost of €9.9 billion (over $11 billion). The Nord Stream-2 project, which plans to use the original Nord Stream pipeline for 86-percent of the route before branching off, could provide up to 55 billion cubic meters of direct gas supplies from the Russian shores through the Baltic Sea to the coast of Germany.

    Hope and prosperity for the future.

    The Arctic Region boasts oil and gas reserves similar to those of Western Siberia.

    According to preliminary estimations, the Arctic reserves have nearly 100 billion tons of fuel, Alexei Kontorovich, Director of the Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told journalists. "As for oil and gas reserves, the Artic is the new Western Siberia. According to geologists, the reserves have 100 billion tons of fuel – oil and gas. But the proportion of oil and gas is a point for discussion," he said.

    Kontorovich added that currently the reserves are believed to 80 percent gas. "Now it is premature to make conclusions. I think the share of oil could increase," he said. Currently, the institute is exploring vast Arctic territories, including the areas from the Pechora Sea and the Barents Sea to the mouth of the Lena River. These are the regions which are now thought to be the largest oil fields.

    Kontorovich underscored that Russia’s two largest energy companies – Rosneft and Gazprom – are also actively involved in the exploration, but they do not share information with scientists.

    Yeah, they cut from proposed 4 lines to 2 for Turkey. I doubt there will be a Power of Siberia 2 pipeline and just the one, as gas is real cheap now and China would be gaining from it but so far no bite. I think a mixture of Turk stream, Nord Stream 2 and Power of Siberia should be enough. I think at this point, Russia should concentrate then by more LNG development, more petrol plants (apparently Russia wont have enough petrol for the demand. So another petrol plant or two is ideal. They could even export petrol more). And green Energy.

    Well, they are pushing to move things like City transit and heavy rail transport through natural gas. There was a test recently of a locomotive powered by gas and apparently very efficient and powerful. And it was either GaZ or Kamaz that started selling both Natgas and electric transit buses. For cars, I imagine it is a great idea as well. Doesnt quite work on large trucks though cause from what I learned from a local here who converted his 80's ford truck with a natgas engine, was it had very little torque and thus had trouble pulling or carrying heavy weight. But he said it was extremely efficient and cheap to use. $30 would get him a full tank and roughly 900km. Cheaper than diesel but as efficient.

    I just havent heard of cars running off of natgas besides custom kit cars or mods. I also imagine cold climates like in Russia or Canada can be problematic when the gases condense. So they may need to be constantly plugged in during cold season. Some are also afraid of combustion as well.

    The new production center of the company "Transneft - Upper Volga" opened in Nizhniy Novgorod

    More than 300 million rubles invested JSC "Transneft-Upper Volga" in the creation and production center in Nizhny Novgorod. As part of the import substitution program of OJSC "AK" Transneft "facility will produce advanced equipment for the oil and gas industry - cabinets line remote control and automation systems, which were previously purchased abroad. This equipment allows you to control the process of transportation of oil and petroleum products by pipelines of the country.

    In 2015, the production center already has made in test mode 37 linear telemechanics cabinets. Currently, the factory has successfully conducted tests of the prototype information processing system (SDI) system for measuring the quantity and quality of crude oil (LACT). Under development of documentation and preparation for the tests to metrological certification of this system for commercial accounting.

    In 2016, it planned to release more than 500 cabinets line of remote control and automation systems 24 units of measurement quality (BIC), 9 SDI SIKN 13 automation systems for boilers. In 2017 it is planned to build a prototype microprocessor automation system head NPC. By this time, it will create nearly one hundred new jobs for highly skilled employees, where the average salary is 75 thousand rubles.

    Good news. More import substitution, the better.

    It was very common here in the late 1970s and early 1980s when petrol became expensive and hard to get to convert standard petrol driven cars to LPG.

    There are still many cars around like that and have an LPG cylinder and a petrol fuel tank that allows the car to run on either fuel.

    I have knowledge on the matter , not university knowledge but it interested me long ago. I drive a fiat punto on methane.
    We have to separate methane CH4 , then ethane ,prophane ,buthane ,penthane etc.... methane is natural gas- or in compressed form CNG (compressed natural gas) or in liquid at - 180 something LNG (liquid natural gas).....
    propane + buthane is lighter then benzine fuels which they get from oil refining and its LPG - liquified petroleum gas.

    Methane cant be compresse under normal temparatures to liquid so it has to be cooled allot , evaporative cooling means some gas is used to transfer it to liquid and to return it to gas in port about 25-30% , so pipes are best method of transport , also this are physical limitations this cant be overcome by technology ..... but petrolium gas can be liquified under room temparature and medium pressures.

    The more Carbon atoms those alkane organic molecul have they are heavier , so they change from gas-liquid-solid as you go up the chain- in normal atmospheric conditions.

    So propane C3H5 and Buthane C4H7 60-40 mix (the mix is different in winter or summer in winter there is more propane because of lower temperatures) can be liquid with slightly higher pressure in room temparatures.
    Lpg is also good to use because it was burned during refining this way it can be used for practical purpose and its cleaner ,cng is cleanest
    That means you can store allot liquid LPG in those steel tanks at slightly higher pressures because they are liquid.
    CNG installation is heavier because inside is gas methane compressed to 200 bar like squbadivers tanks, so tank is of thick steel. But still not much gas can be stored and tanks are big hevay and car autonomy is low...
    Recently they are using composite tanks so they are lighter but more expencive.

    With cng you lose some power compared to petrol about 20% , you are pumping gas into combustion chamber unlike liquid petrol so there is less energy inside it.
    If you use 10l petrol you will use 8KG of CNG (cng is measured in Kilograms because its gaseous not liquid) , 1kg is about 75% price of petrol.
    Or you will use 12,5KG of LPG but have same power from engine. and LNG is about 50%.
    Note that prices change from country to country and during time period.
    This is all with indirect injection cars. vacuum carburator old cars have worse economy.
    also ther is direct injection for LPG from some companies conversions.
