The Gazprom headquarters hosted today a working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company's Management Committee and Natalia Komarova, Governor of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug (KhMAO) – Yugra.
The parties discussed the implementation of the Agreement of Cooperation placing an emphasis on construction and reconstruction of gas supply and gasification facilities in the region.
It was highlighted that Gazprom was constructing three inter-settlement gas pipelines connecting an automated gas distribution station located near the Peregrebnenskaya compressor station with the Chemashi village, the Lugovskoy settlement with the Troitsa settlement and the gas distribution point in the Belogorye settlement with the Kirpichny settlement. It is projected to commission the said gas pipelines in 2012.

Gazprom and the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Yugra Government signed the Agreement of Cooperation and the Accord on Gasification in February 2011 and in December 2007 accordingly.

Between 2008 and 2010 Gazprom allocated RUB 420 million to design and construct the 34-kilometer inter-settlement gas pipeline between an automated gas distribution station in Khanty-Mansiysk and the Lugovskoy settlement.
