A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Klaus Schaefer, Chief Executive Officer of Uniper, took place today at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2016.
The meeting participants addressed Russian gas deliveries to Germany and other European countries.
The parties emphasized the importance of Nord Stream for reliable exports of Russian gas to the European markets. It was noted that increasing gas supplies through the pipeline, which had grown by 9.8 per cent in 2015 versus 2014, underscored the relevance of direct routes from Russia to Europe.
In this respect, the companies' executives discussed the progress of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline construction.
