Monday, Apr 24, 2017
A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Rainer Seele, Chairman of the Executive Board of OMV, took place in Moscow on 20 April 2017.
The meeting participants addressed issues related to bilateral cooperation. It was highlighted that Austria continued to increase its gas imports from Russia. Specifically, Gazprom’s exports to Austria between April 1 and April 19, 2017, were 69.9 per cent higher than in the same period of 2016.
Speaking about Europe’s growing demand for Russian gas in light of the region’s declining indigenous production, the heads of the companies once again stressed the importance of Nord Stream 2 for ensuring reliable gas supplies to European consumers.
The parties also discussed further steps under the Basic Agreement regarding the asset swap.
