Alexey Miller's column
Welcome address by Alexey Miller, Chairman of Gazprom Management Committee at Conference “The Future of Europe’s Energy Sector: Its Structure and Place in the Global Market”
“Firstly, I’d like to say we have some good news. The volume of gas supply to Europe, Gazprom’s supply in 2015 shows an upward trend in comparison with the similar periods of 2014. We observed this trend in April and it has continued in May.”
Alexey Miller moderates 32nd Meeting of EBC Presiding Committee and 18th Annual General Meeting of EBC
“Speaking of the factor affecting the European gas market, these are, primarily, the domestic production decline in Europe. Therefore, regardless of the gas market behavior, Russian gas supplies to Europe will grow and the share of our gas will increase as well.
Europe has contracted out only 30 per cent of today's consumption for 2030. Today this is the supplier's market and there are a few of them now.
The demand for new gas transmission capacities for Russian gas supplies is evident, we are negotiating these issues and we are poised to enter into the relevant productive agreements.”
“The western route will provide access to the vast resources of Western Siberia for the Chinese market. The resource base is available. Gazprom will be able to start supplies upon completion of the gas pipeline.
In the meantime, the western route will not affect the Power of Siberia project. The intergovernmental agreement on the eastern route is ratified. Gazprom will fulfill its obligations right on time.”
”The Victory Day is the token of our national triumph, military glory and labor merit... We pay court to the feat of front-line soldiers and homefront workers. We must pass the historic truth about the Great Victory on to the future generations.“
“We had very efficient and crucial talks today. It was agreed to bring onstream Turkish Stream and to start gas supplies in December 2016. Gazprom, while implementing its portion of work under the Turkish Stream project, will follow the agreements reached today.”
Dear veterans! Esteemed colleagues!
I would like to heartily congratulate you on the Victory Day!
70 years ago a tremendous event took place. Our country defeated fascism – a dire threat to the humankind – and brought the long-awaited peace to many nations.
It was the most sanguinary war. It has changed the course of the world history forever, warped the lives of millions of people, brought infinite sufferings and ills. Our people had gone through severe trials, but they managed to hold out and win!
On this day we call to memory all those who died in great combats and who were lucky to return home. All those who worked on the home front outwatching the nights. All the known and unknown heroes. The feat of wartime generations will forever remain in the historic memory of our nation and all humankind.
We treasure the memory of the war. Our official website has a special section named 'Our Victory. My history' where our contemporaries who didn't witness the war tell us about their nearest and dearest who fought in the lines. Their personal impressions and pure emotions yet again show us that the Great Patriotic War is a great cause for sadness and proudness uniting us.
Dear veterans! On behalf of all the postwar generations we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to you. Hats off to you for your selflessness, courage, love for the Motherland. For the right to life and peaceful future.
On this solemn day please accept the warmest wishes of robust health, happiness, well-being and long life!
