Entry to this segment of the energy market helps improve the efficiency of natural gas sales by obtaining additional revenues from the production of electricity. It also helps to guarantee the sale of gas to the electric power production segment and to diversify market risks. In addition, our participation in electricity production in liberalized markets will help improve the overall efficiency of market transactions by optimizing the «gas - electric power» tandem.
