The head of the Gazprom Alexey Miller has discussed with the CEO of EDF Jean-Bernard Levy the creation of new routes for gas exports to Europe in view of the re-launch of the Turkish Stream pipeline project, reports the press service of Gazprom.
The delegation of Gazprom headed by the Chairman of the Company’s Management Committee Alexey Miller paid a visit to France on Wednesday. “The parties paid particular attention to creating new routes for Russian gas exports to Europe in the light of the resumed Turkish Stream project,” reads the Gazprom press release.
During his working visit, Mr Miller also met the Chairman of the Board of Directors of ENGIE Gerard Mestrallet with who he discussed ongoing and future cooperation, including joint efforts within the Nord Stream-2 project.
From January 1 to September 13, 2016, Gazprom supplied 8 billion cubic meters of gas to France, up 27.3% over the same period of 2015.
EDF is one of the leaders in the European energy market. The company is engaged in production, transportation and distribution of electricity, and also operates in the gas sector. On February 24, 2016 Gazprom, Edison SpA (EDF) and DEPA SA signed a “Memorandum of Understanding on natural gas supplies from Russia under the Black Sea through third countries to Greece and from Greece to Italy.”
French ENGIE implements projects in the field of exploration, production, refining and marketing of natural gas, as well as in the electricity sector. Together with Gazprom they collaborate in the field of gas supply and transportation within the Nord Stream pipeline project.
Earlier, the Gazprom press service reported that the company continues receiving construction permits for the Turkish Stream from the authorities of the Turkish Republic as part of the preparatory procedures for resuming the Turkish Stream project as was reached in the agreement in the beginning of September between Alexey Miller and the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of the Turkish Republic Berat Albyrak.
