Led by Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, the Company’s delegation, paid a working visit today to France.
As part of the visit, a working meeting took place in Paris between Alexey Miller and Jean-Pierre Jouyet, Chief of Staff of the President of France.
It was pointed out that against the declining domestic production in Europe, the demand for gas imports would grow. Russia, as a reliable energy supplier to the European economy, will be able to secure gas export to the extent required.
In this context the parties addressed the issue of developing gas transmission routes for Russian gas supply to Europe. It was highlighted that the Nord Stream gas pipeline was running smoothly. The parties noted that the Nord Stream 2 project would strongly boost the reliability of gas supplies to Europe.
In addition, Alexey Miller met today in Paris with Gerard Mestrallet, Chairman and CEO of ENGIE.
The meeting was focused on the preparations for the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline construction.
