The Outlook for Russian LNG

Russia is set to become one of the four major players in the global LNG market, with the US, Australia and Qatar. The drive behind this important strategic move is Novatek, which has become the country’s LNG champion with significant support from the Kremlin. This research will outline the key projects in the growth of Russia’s LNG business but will mainly focus on the geo-political and corporate drivers that are behind the country’s shift towards LNG. In particular, expansion in the Arctic, the shift to Asia and the division of labour with Gazprom will be addressed, as will the domestic and international implications of Russia’s gradual diversification away from pipeline exports towards a more flexible and dynamic export strategy.
