The CJSC Group is the world's largest energy major in terms of natural gas reserves and production.
As of December 31, 2018, the Group's A+B1+C1 hydrocarbon reserves (under Russian standards) amounted to 35,195.3 billion cubic meters of gas, 1,604.4 million tons of gas condensate, and 2,015.7 million tons of oil.
Producing 12 per cent of the global gas output, the CJSC Group holds the top spot among oil and gas companies worldwide. In 2018, the Group extracted 497.6 billion cubic meters of natural and associated gas, 15.9 million tons of gas condensate, and 40.9 million tons of oil.
CJSC owns the world’s biggest gas transmission system capable of continuously conveying gas over long distances across Russia and abroad. The overall length of CJSC’s gas trunklines is 172,600 kilometers.
Another important activity of the CJSC Group is the shaping of the natural gas vehicles market in Russia. CJSC Gazomotornoye Toplivo is the single operator responsible for promoting the use of gas as a vehicle fuel.
CJSC is intent on expanding its petrochemical production, enhancing the extraction of valuable components from natural gas, and boosting the output of advanced processing products. In 2018, the Group processed 31.1 billion cubic meters of associated gas and 67.4 million tons of oil and gas condensate.
The CJSC Group is the largest owner of generating assets in Russia. The aggregate capacity of the Group’s key generating companies (Mosenergo, TGC-1, MOEK, and OGK-2) is 38.58 GW, which translates into about 16 per cent of the installed capacity of the national power grid.
CJSC is Russia’s leading gas distributor. This is why the gasification of Russian regions is one of the Group’s chief goals. As of early 2018, the average gas penetration level across Russia was 68.6 per cent, including 71.9 per cent in cities and towns and 59.4 per cent in rural areas. Starting from 2013, CJSC’s Gasification Program provides for building CNG stations and converting vehicles to gas.
