Moscow, 21 March - Neftegaz.RU. A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Gazprom´s CEO, and Pasquale Terracciano, Ambassador of Italy in Russia, took place on March 20, 2018.


The parties noted that Gazprom had been a reliable supplier of gas to Italy for several decades. The country is currently the 3rd-largest importer of Russian gas. According to preliminary data, Russia’s gas exports to Italy grew by 99 % in March 1–19, 2018, compared to the same period of last year.


Particular attention at the meeting was paid to the diversification of gas export routes from Russia to Europe. The parties reviewed the ongoing efforts to establish a southern supply route stretching across the Black Sea.


Alexey Miller informed Pasquale Terracciano of the completion of over 50 % of the offshore section of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline. It was highlighted that the 2nd string of the pipeline would provide European consumers with 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas annually.
