Gazprom delegation meets in Austria to discuss gas supplies

An OAO Gazprom delegation discussed Russian gas supplies to Austria in meetings in Vienna on Apr. 22.

Alexey Miller, chairman of Gazprom’s management committee, met with Gerhard Roiss, chief executive officer of OMV, and Reinhold Mitterlehner, Austria’s federal minister of economy.

Regarding the South Stream gas pipeline project (OGJ Online, Mar. 11, 2014), Miller said Gazprom agreed to a proposal by Austria “to look into the possibility of constructing a gas pipeline section in Austria within the existing intergovernmental agreement, simultaneously with the Slovenian section.”

Roiss said, “I believe that the economic integration of Europe and our partners in Russia is the way to preserve the stability of our continent.”

According to Gazprom’s web site, the company supplied Austria 5.23 billion cu m of gas in 2013.
