Speech by Alexey Miller, Chairman of Gazprom Management Committee, at annual General Shareholders Meeting
“Gazprom successfully pursues a strategy to attain leadership among global energy companies.”
Speech by Alexey Miller at “Gas as an Effective Tool for Achieving the Environmental Targets of the Global Economy” Panel Session held as part of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum
“Gas is the cleanest fossil fuel. Gas reserves are abundant and available. Crucially, we have highly advanced technologies for gas production, transportation and storage. And the gas business is highly profitable.
When we talk about the growing role of gas in the global energy mix, as well as its increasing share, we mean that this growth will stem primarily from power generation and transport. And when it comes to the advantages of natural gas as a fossil fuel, it should be clear that gas has its own strengths in each of these sectors."
Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, today held in Moscow a conference call marking the 25th anniversary of Gazprom.
The event was broadcast live to 54 companies of the Gazprom Group.
Please accept my heartfelt congratulations on the 25th anniversary of Gazprom.
In a quarter of a century, we have done a tremendous amount of work, in the results of which we can deservedly take pride.
We have built the foundation for Russia’s gas industry development in the 21st century, making Gazprom a leader in the global energy market.
We have created a gigantic gas production center in the Yamal Peninsula. Eastern Russia’s gas sector is taking shape as well. The bountiful riches of those regions will be the main sources of gas for consumers in Russia and abroad in the decades to come.
