Gazprom CEO, French Ambassador Discuss Nord Stream, Shtokman (Russia)

The Gazprom headquarters hosted a working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company’s Management Committee and Jean de Gliniasty, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of France to Russia.

The parties addressed crucial issues of the cooperation among Gazprom and French energy companies.

Alexey Miller and Jean de Gliniasty highlighted the relevancy of the Nord Stream project that had provided extra gas supplies to European consumers during anomalously cold periods.

The parties shared the opinion that new direct gas transmission capacities had to be built from Russia to Europe in order to meet the growing demand of European consumers for Russian natural gas.

Besides, the meeting participants discussed the current state and prospects for the Shtokman project as well as the cooperation between Gazprom and GDF Suez in the energy efficiency and environmental protection areas.
