Rosneft efforts to export gas confined to Far East LNG project - Sechin

We are actively working on the gas program - Sechin said.

Rosneft's efforts to export gas from Russia are limited only to its LNG project in the country's Far East, the Russian oil major's president, Igor Sechin said on June 21.

"We are actively working on the gas program. In general, as an energy source, gas will have a big future in the medium-term program. But due to legislative restrictions, we can't ship gas out of Russia, with the exception of liquefaction projects," Sechin said in an interview with TV channel Rossiya 24.

"We're implementing one project in the East, and our work on exporting gas from Russia is confined to this," Sechin said.
