          The West helped Russia to turn East, Moscow and Seoul are able to bring Russian gas

          “Nine bridges of cooperation”, wants to bring Russia South Korea. The desire is undoubtedly good, and trade ties between Seoul and Moscow could bring much money to both countries. Why until now, even the most attractive joint projects – for example, the construction of the pipeline – remain only on paper?

          “We are ready to significantly step up cooperation with Russia and other countries of northeast Asia,” – said the President of South Korea, moon Jae-In, speaking at a meeting of the Eastern economic forum (WEF) in Vladivostok. The South Korean President suggested that Russia “put nine bridges of cooperation”. “Nine bridges is a bridge gas, railway, Northern sea route, ship-building, the creation of working groups, agriculture and other cooperation,” he said.

          South Korea cannot be called a key trading partner of Russia. The peak trade volume between the two countries occurred in 2014, when he reached 27,31 billion dollars, but then decreased to 15.14 billion in 2016.

          After the crisis of 2014 began to fall not only trade, but also the flow of South Korean investment in Russia. “Here is the main political component, and South Korea did not want to fall under the hand of the United States, for example,” says Anna Bodrova of Alpari.

          However, this year the trade turnover between the countries began to grow again. Why? First, the Russian economy is beginning to recover. Secondly, with the deterioration of relations with North Korea its main neighbor South Korea, needs more allies, and Russia this role is well suited indicates Bodrov.

          Interestingly, the trade balance with South Korea in Russia’s favor (67%). However, Russia exports to South Korea are mainly oil, gas and mineral oil, they account for 82.5% of total exports. The second largest section with a large gap is animal products (meat, fats, skins), it accounts for only 5.4% of all deliveries.

          “It is obvious that South Korea is primarily interested in supplies of Russian fuel, which confirms at least the emphasis on the conclusion of the preliminary agreement concerning the supply of an additional 12 billion cubic meters of gas and extension of gas pipeline through North Korea to South Korea. If bridges will be nine, the main of them will be the gas”, – said Kirill Yakovenko from “ALOR Broker”. Earlier, on the sidelines of the WEF, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that at the moment, the issue about increasing purchases of liquefied natural gas in the framework of participation of South Korean companies in projects “Sakhalin-1” and “Sakhalin-2”.

          It is important for Russia to stake its share in the highly attractive South Korean gas market. Last year South Korea imported 34,19 million tons of LNG, becoming the second in the world after Japan’s gas imports. In addition, the South Korean government expects to increase the share of natural gas from 18% to 37% by 2030. And from coal-fired power plants want to completely give up.

          The Americans have managed to take a fancy to the South Korean market. This summer Donald trump signed an agreement to supply LNG from the US to South Korea at $ 25 billion over 20 years. However, while the Americans are competing in this market with Qatar and Australia. Russia could become a significant player in the market only after the development of their own LNG projects and, of course, in the case of construction of a gas pipeline to South Korea. About this project worth a special mention.

          The construction of a gas pipeline from Russia to South Korea via the DPRK would be very beneficial for all participants. Russia is a new market, additional revenues and diversification of gas supplies. And, of course, increased political influence of Russia in the region. For South Korea, devoid of its own fields and forced to buy expensive LNG, which means access to cheaper pipeline gas. North Korea will be able to receive income for transit. This project would long ago have been realized, if not for political difficulties around North Korea.

          “North Korea has become a big headache for the world community, so any projects involving the use of the territory of North Korea, are in limbo. To carry out the same pipeline that bypasses North Korea in Korea it is impossible simply because prices of such bypass. And

          because of this inconvenient neighborhood Korea was in the area of political influence of the US and the EU, are in confrontation with Russia, which again hinders the implementation of several large-scale projects”,

          – says Yakovenko.

          A striking example of such stale projects are plans for South Korea to become the third member of the railway Khasan – Rajin, built a few years ago thanks to the investment of Russian Railways. Through the North Korean port of Rajin to Russia exports to China of coal. This project wanted to join and South Korea, because then she would be able to obtain Russian goods and send your much faster and cheaper.

          However, the political circumstances associated with the anti-Russian sanctions and the North Korean nuclear program has frozen the participation of South Korea in this project.

          In turn, from South Korea Russia gets mainly engineering products. “In the first half of Korea has put in Russia of machines and industrial equipment $ 1.2 billion, plus vehicles to $ 1.1 billion. These two categories form almost 70% of all Korean imports”, – said Yakovenko. Basically the Koreans are supplying the kits and spare parts for built in Russian factories. In addition, Russia has ordered on the Korean shipyard of 15 LNG carriers to transport LNG along the Northern sea route.

          Moreover, the Minister for Far East development Alexander Galushka invited investors from South Korea to take part in the construction of fishing vessels and work in the fish processing sector. To attract Korean investors may be starting in Russia the program “quotas in exchange for investments”. Now, extraction of aquatic biological resources linked to the obligations for construction of fish processing plants or vessels in the Far East.

          “To ignore such orders is simply impossible, and they will certainly affect the structure of trade in a better way,” says Yakovenko. Meanwhile, South Korea is approximately on 20-th place by volume of investments in Russia.

          For its part, South Korea has expressed the desire to establish a free trade zone with the Eurasian economic community. “The difficulty is that

          declared a lot of projects, for example in medicine, but they remain projects for the real touch points of our economy and very little Korean.

          I think Koreans are worried about the vulnerability of private property in Russia”, – says Sergey Zvenigorodsky from UK “solid Management”.

          That’s what Koreans are really interested is in the development of the Far East. “They have their own restricted area, but our foreign policy doctrine does not allow rental of these lands,” adds the source.

          If the Koreans are primarily interested in projects in the field of energy and mining resources, Russia would be great to be involved, for example, in medical cooperation and high technology. Between the two countries runs the joint Committee, which develops these issues, but political formation of relations, it seems, here are more weight than economic, concludes Bodrov.

          Seoul suggests economic bridges with Moscow mainly through memoranda and discussions. It is time to make concrete steps.
