40th anniversary of first contract for gas supply to France

“Today we celebrate the 40th anniversary of our cooperation, 40 years of stable supplies of Russian gas to France. This is a clear testament of constructive, mutually beneficial relations between two world class companies. We proceed in our cooperation with ENGIE based on long-term contracts which constitute an important element of energy security in France.

Today we also celebrate another jubilee – five years ago ENGIE became a partner in Nord Stream. Today the success of the project is known to everyone, so in September we and our European partners, including of course ENGIE, made a decision to construct Nord Stream 2. The project will bring to the European market additional 55 billion cubic meters of Russian gas.”
