The event brought in Governor of Sakhalin Region Valery Limarenko; Deputy Chairman of Sakhalin Region Government Vladimir Sidorenko; Deputy CEO of the Roscongress Foundation and Director of the Eastern Economic Forum Igor Pavlov; representatives of the Russian Ministry of Energy and Ministry of Industry and Trade, Gazprom, gas equipment suppliers, as well as employees of dealership centres, transportation companies, and the Far East Investment and Export Agency.

The conference focused on the Russian transport segment transitioning to natural gas motor fuel, as well as challenges and opportunities related to this transition.

«Today, natural gas motor fuel is successfully used in over 80 countries. Sakhalin Region has resources and technology to successfully implement this project,» said Governor of Sakhalin Region Valery Limarenko.

«This conference is a major event for the Russian Far East and for the whole country. Transport running on compressed and liquefied natural has a great potential. Participants and guests of the conference and the exhibition could see it for themselves. We will prepare our suggestions for the EEF 2020 business programme as a follow-up to Sakhalin Gas Conference,» noted Deputy CEO of the Roscongress Foundation Igor Pavlov.

Discussions of the natural gas motor fuel transition continued during the roundtables. It was announced that Sakhalin plans to switch half of its vehicles to methane by 2024. In order to achieve that, the island is already setting a chain of natural gas fuelling stations and service centres, building up the fleet of municipal machinery running on methane and creating more support measures for those car owners that decided to reequip their vehicles.

Participants of the project to build the natural gas fuelling station infrastructure get multiple preferences, including a land plot with no tendering process, outright grants to reimburse for expenses related to construction and assembly, as well as purchasing equipment for natural gas fuelling stations

The conference offered a special exhibition where equipment owners, representatives of production companies, service centres and dealerships shared features of their equipment and machinery.

The Government of Sakhalin Region and Yandex signed a cooperation agreement during the conference. The parties agreed to cooperate in promoting road safety, implement joint environmental initiatives and projects, and develop information and communications technologies.

The conference helped Sakhalin-based companies find more partners that produce and service equipment and machinery running on natural gas fuel.

The 6th Eastern Economic Forum will take place in Vladivostok on 2–5 September 2020. The event is organized by the Roscongress Foundation.
