In light of the departure of foreign manufacturers, it has become of key importance to address the need to have dynamic LNG equipment and LNG pumps. Without concerted action on these matters, we will not be able to reach the volumes we have spoken about today — Dmitry Evstafiev, Chief Executive Officer, NIPIGAS.
The country needs to have its own technology. It must be technologically independent in relation to other countries in the midst of these changes. We need to build the equipment and production capabilities required to meet the demand... of companies that want to sell liquefied natural gas — Andrey Nikipelov, General Director, Atomenergomash.
We don’t need to be looking at the task facing us as import substitution and localization. It is in fact the creation of new technology with new equipment. And if we simply copy what our Western colleagues did, I don’t think we’ll find ourselves on the fastest or best path — Yury Skrynnik, Managing Director, HMS Compressors Business Unit (HMS Group).
Atomenergomash have made a good [successfully tested – ed.] cryogenic submersible pump, and are offering it for almost twice as much as what we bought it for yesterday from Japan. This is down to conditions surrounding the provision of subsidies and uncertainty regarding the number of orders. <...> If we show that this is not an order for one line, but for 10, then I hope the prices will be very different — Leonid Mikhelson, Chairman of the Management Board, Member of the Board of Directors, NOVATEK.
