St. Petersburg, December 4 - Neftegaz.RU. A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Aisen Nikolaev, Head of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), took place on November 30.
The parties reviewed ongoing cooperation, noting the strategic importance of Gazprom’s efforts in the region in the context of the Eastern Gas Program. The Company continues to pre-develop the Chayandinskoye field, which forms the basis of a major gas production center.
Construction of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline, which will provide domestic and foreign consumers with gas extracted in Yakutia and the Irkutsk Region, is going according to schedule.
The commissioning of Power of Siberia is linked to gas infrastructure expansion in Yakutia. Gazprom is currently designing a number of top-priority facilities – 4 gas pipeline branches with gas distribution stations and four inter-settlement gas pipelines – to bring gas to the towns of Aldan and Olyokminsk, the villages of Bechencha and Murya in the Lensky District, and the village of Iengra in the Neryungrinsky District.
