Gazprom completes one-third of Nord Stream 2 pipeline
A working meeting between Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee Alexey Miller and Chairman of the Executive Board of OMV Rainer Seele took place in Moscow yesterday.
The parties paid particular attention to the ongoing implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project, noting that the work is going as planned. As of now, 818 kilometers of pipes – precisely one-third of the gas pipeline’s total length – have been laid in the Baltic Sea, according to Gazprom's press service.
The parties also reviewed current issues related to their cooperation, including the growth in gas exports to Austria. Between January 1 and March 5, 2019, the Company’s gas supplies to the country amounted to an estimated 3.3 billion cubic meters, an increase of 32.9% from the same period of last year.
In addition, Miller and Seele touched upon the prospects for further sci-tech cooperation and collaboration in the area of culture.
