A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Mher Grigoryan, Acting Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, took place in St. Petersburg today.
The meeting participants discussed the state and prospects of bilateral cooperation, including natural gas supplies to Armenia in 2019.
The parties also reviewed issues related to gas infrastructure expansion and underground gas storage in Armenia. It was noted that UGS facilities were ready for operation in the 2018–2019 autumn/winter period.
