The LNG industry in Russia is still in its infancy, with only one operating large LNG plant, Sakhalin-2. But there are plans for construction other plants as well. Yamal LNG is already under construction. There are active negotiations and work on the implementation of projects Pechora LNG, Arctic LNG-2, Baltic LNG, Far East LNG. Besides the small-scale LNG market, is actively developing, used for the gasification of remote regions. Projects on the use of LNG as natural gas motor fuel are also developed actively. 

All this determines the need for a forum to share best practices, present the best technologies on the market. Major importers, consumers of the Russia’s gas in the markets of Europe and Asia, will be able to get acquainted with Russia’s projects.
