Russia modernizing its pipeline network - China and Europe set to witness greater connectivity with the Russian pipeline network


Summary

The Russian Federation as the major successor state to the former Soviet Union inherited a vast network of pipelines spread throughout the whole country. However in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union, the oil and gas sector in Russia suffered a shock and production levels fell drastically. However in recent years the oil and gas sector in the country has been boosted due to several new pipelines being built to replace or expand the ageing Soviet era infrastructure. Further several more major pipeline projects are currently under construction, which will further boost the oil and gas sector in the country in the coming years.
