Aggressive promotion of the “green agenda” actually means declaring energy war on the majority of the world’s population; overcoming inequality is impossible without reliable supplies of oil and gas, said Rosneft Chief Executive Officer Igor Sechin at the XXVII St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

In his opinion, in the future, demand for electricity will grow due to developing countries that have yet to overcome energy poverty. Thus, today more than two of the eight billion people on Earth still use open fires for domestic needs, and over 700 million people live without access to electricity.

“The gap in energy consumption between poor and rich countries is striking. For example, per capita consumption in India, where about 20% of the world’s population lives, is eleven times lower than in the United States. In general, in the so-called G7 countries, where less than 10% of the world’s population lives, energy consumption per capita is almost three times higher than the world average,” Sechin said during his report at the Energy Panel.

He recalled that it is in the developing countries of Asia and Africa that the greatest population growth is observed and, as a result, a rapid increase in the need for energy resources. It is obvious that in this situation, reducing global consumption of fossil resources would automatically mean not only maintaining, but also exacerbating the problem of hunger and energy poverty.

“Thus, the aggressive promotion of the “green agenda” actually means declaring energy war on the majority of the world’s population,” noted the head of Rosneft.

In his opinion, overcoming energy inequality is impossible without reliable supplies of oil and gas. Those advocating a complete ban on fossil fuels, or even a phase-out, do not take into account the role of oil in the modern world. Indeed, in addition to petroleum products, oil is used to produce a huge number of everyday goods, without which the life of a modern person can no longer be imagined.

“Giving up oil will mean giving up the modern way of life. And, conversely, for many countries, increased oil consumption means access to the benefits of civilization,” summed up Igor Sechin.
