South Stream may branch off to Republika Srpska
A working meeting took place between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee and Milorad Dodik, President of the Republika Srpska.
The parties discussed possible construction of a gas lateral from South Stream to the Republika Srpska.
The meeting also addressed the issues of preparing the contract for Russian gas supplies to the country.
The Republika Srpska is a political entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
For the purpose of diversifying gas export routes, Gazprom is going to construct a gas pipeline across the Black Sea to Southern and Central Europe – the South Stream project.
Intergovernmental agreements have been signed with Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Greece, Slovenia, Croatia and Austria in order to implement the onshore gas pipeline section.
