"We believe that the share of natural gas in the global energy mix will only increase", said Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak, APA-Economics reports citing Guardian.

Alexander Novak said that Russia did “not see that we will achieve a peak in [gas] production anytime soon” because the world’s appetite for gas would continue to grow in the decades ahead despite its growing number of climate targets.

"During a crucial decade in the battle to keep a lid on rising global temperatures, Russia will pair a 50% growth in gas production with plans to become a global leader in producing clean-burning hydrogen and developing carbon capture technology", Minister noted.
