Japan keen to expand cooperation with Russian energy companies

Japan is interested in expanding their cooperation with Russian companies in the energy sector, Russia’s Energy Ministry reported after the meeting of Deputy Energy Minister Anatoly Yanovsky with a delegation of the Japan Association for Trade with Russia attended by heads of several Japanese energy companies in July.

According to the ministry, Russia’s coal exports to Japan have been on the rise recently and exceeded 16 mln tonnes last year, making Russia the third largest coal exporter to Japan after Australia and Indonesia.

‘True, we’re facing the task of substantially increasing transport potential regarding coal supplies to the countries of the Asian-Pacific Region. Many big Russian companies - Kuzbassrazrezugol, Suek, Mechel - have been expanding their presence in the region. Particularly, the development program of the coal sector through 2035 implies certain measures aimed at increasing coal supplies in the eastern direction,’ Yanovsky was quoted as saying.
