The Russian Ministry of Energy expects to maintain the current gas production volume in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, Russian Deputy Minister of Energy Kirill Molodtsov said during an international meeting with representatives of Arctic Council member states attended by more than 100 representatives from 15 countries.
