OMV said on Wednesday that the meeting was run by the deputy chairman of Gazprom’s management committee Oleg Aksyutin and OMV board member for upstream and deputy chairman of the executive board Johann Pleininger.

The participants discussed issues related to the integrity of the gas transmission system, the outlook for the energy markets, environmental protection, drilling techniques, and hydrocarbon exploration and production technologies.

OMV also said that the parties signed the annex to the Program for the Scientific and Technical Cooperation and Partnership for 2016 to 2020.

The document adds a new dimension to the companies’ research activities and ensures safe operation of oil and gas facilities through best practices in occupational safety.

It is worth noting that OMV is Gazprom’s main partner in Austria. The companies cooperate in gas production, transportation, and supplies.

On April 1, 2016, Gazprom and OMV signed the Agreement for scientific and technical cooperation and partnership. Later that year, Gazprom and OMV signed the Program for scientific and technical cooperation and partnership for 2016–2020.
