Gazprom, OMV talk gas cooperation
The heads of Gazprom and OMV, Alexey Miller and Rainer Seele held discussions in St. Petersburg focusing on gas supplies and Nord Stream 2 progress.
Speaking of the ongoing construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, the parties noted that 968 kilometers of pipes – more than 40 percent of the combined length of the gas pipeline’s two strings – have been laid in the Baltic Sea.
Particular attention was paid to further steps in the development of the bilateral strategic partnership.
OMV is Gazprom’s main partner in Austria. The companies cooperate in gas production, transportation and supplies.
In June 2018, an Agreement was signed to extend until 2040 the existing contract between Gazprom Export and OMV Gas Marketing & Trading GmbH for Russian gas supplies to Austria.
Nord Stream 2 is the construction project for a gas pipeline with the annual capacity of 55 billion cubic meters from Russia to Germany across the Baltic Sea.
