Today in the Gazprom headquarters Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company's Management Committee held a meeting dedicated to implementation of the Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok gas transmission system (GTS) project.

According to Alexey Miller, a backbone of the Unified Gas Supply System in Eastern Russia is the Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok gas pipeline that meets consumer gas demand in the region and lays the foundation for gas supplies to the global market.
