MINSK, 27 March (BelTA) – Gasification of the housing stock in Belarus will continue along with electrification, Energy Minister Viktor Karankevich said at a meeting with the staff of Belgaztekhnika, BelTA learned from the press service of the Energy Ministry.

According to the minister, in the current five-year period, living conditions will be improved in 1,800 settlements: power networks will be upgraded in 1,500 of them, which will allow using electricity for heating and hot water supply; gasification will be carried out in 300 settlements where gas pipes have been laid and where it does not make economic sense to renovate the electricity supply infrastructure. “These are mainly rural settlements,” noted Viktor Karankevich.

Gasification is carried out as part of the government programs “Comfortable housing and friendly environment” and “Housing construction”.

The minister added that in 2023 gas provision organizations completed important projects to improve the reliability of gas supply. Thus, the construction of gas transmission pipelines to loop the Zhitkovichi gas station and the David-Gorodok gas station, the Yasen gas station and the Bobruisk gas station, and to loop high-pressure gas pipeline of Polotsk and the urban village of Obol has been completed. Gas filling stations have been upgraded and renovated. About 1,000 km of gas pipelines of various types have been put into operation throughout the country. The total length of gas networks exceeds 67,000 km.

“Our priority is to improve the quality of services. Modern service facilities are being created to provide a wide range of services; they operate based on the “one-stop-shop” principle. Over the past three years alone, 39 such service centers have been opened in settlements with a population of 40,000 people or more,” the press service of the Energy Ministry emphasized.
