Siberia's Fuel-Energy Complex


  • Iu. Maksimov


If we take two contour maps of our country and indicate fuel-producing regions on one and energy-consuming regions on the other, not only will there be substantial differences in the shading of various parts on each of these maps, but the regions with the darkest shading will virtually not coincide. The shift of increases in reserves of fuel-energy resources to the northern and eastern regions of the nation and inertia plus the traditional approach to the siting of fuel- and energy-intensive production facilities primarily in the European part of the nation necessitate a significant increase in the total flow of fuel-energy resources to the European part of the nation. For example, the total flow of fuel-energy resources from Siberia to the European part of the nation increased approximately 6.4 times between 1971 and 1980.
