Russia is open for partnership and developing potential for Russia–China cooperation to the full is truly important for us. This ranks among the highest potentials for mutual investment and interest in the world — Pavel Sorokin, Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation.
The total financing required for complex plan measures [for the development of the Arctic, – Ed.] is expected to be about 10.5 trillion roubles. This is mostly non-budget investment. No doubt, these projects can be interesting for Chinese investors — Denis Khramov, First Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation.
In 2018, China’s need for Russian gas significantly grew. Russia’s capabilities for gas extraction and export allow to ramp up cooperation. In future, China will see an increment of gas consumption, which offers an incredible market outlook for our countries — Wang Nengquan, Principal Researcher, Sinochem's Economics and Technology Research Center.
We know that Russian operations constantly develop infrastructure and opportunities to distribute gas in Russia. We invite our Russian colleagues to participate in improving China’s gas distribution system — Li Yinghua, Deputy Director, Department of Oil and Gas, National Energy Administration.
