“With the Soyuz Vostok gas pipeline, Russia's Power of Siberia 2 gas pipeline will extend through Mongolia, and its export capacity might become more than 1.3 times higher than that of Power of Siberia. This will allow us to export large amounts of gas from Western Siberia not only westward but also eastward.”
“Instruction on signing medium-term five-year programs for gas supply and gas infrastructure expansion with the regions of the Russian Federation has been carried out: all of the 67 programs have been signed, and the goals and objectives through 2025 have been outlined.”
“Today marks exactly one year since the TurkStream offshore gas pipeline was launched in a grand opening ceremony. The pipeline is reliably transmitting Russian gas across the Black Sea for consumers in Turkey and as many as six European countries: Bulgaria, Greece, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since bringing TurkStream into operation, Gazprom has increased the gas pipeline's utilization rate by 2.2 times, including a 2.5-fold growth in utilization for European consumers. I would like to note that the year 2020 saw Turkey, Greece, and North Macedonia ramp up their gas purchases from Gazprom.”
“The preliminary results are in for Gazprom’s core activities in the year 2020.
The Company fulfilled all of its obligations to consumers in Russia and abroad in a reliable manner.”
“TurkStream is a state-of-the-art, efficient and reliable gas pipeline that is in high demand by European consumers. The number of European countries receiving Russian gas via TurkStream has grown to six. Along with Bulgaria, Greece, North Macedonia and Romania, this opportunity is now available in Serbia and in Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
