A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Rainer Seele, Chairman of the Executive Board of OMV, took place in Moscow today.
The parties 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 per cent from the same period of last year.
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.
In addition, the meeting touched upon the prospects for further sci-tech cooperation and collaboration in the area of culture.
