Vladivostok hosted on September 8 a working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee and Rainer Seele, Chairman of the OMV Executive Board as part of the Eastern Economic Forum.
The meeting addressed the outlooks for further cooperation in the gas sector. In particular, the parties discussed the joint construction of new gas transmission infrastructure as well as possible interaction in gas production.
“OMV is not just Gazprom’s key partner in Austria, it is one of our strategic partners in Europe. We are bound by over 40 years of fruitful cooperation and we are committed to broadening it. The Nord Stream II project is underway. An Asset Swap Agreement was signed. It considerably strengthens the companies’ positions at all the stages of the production chain and increases the energy security of European consumers,” said Alexey Miller at the end of the meeting.
