Chairman of the Management Committee, Gazprom
June 6, 2011
"Gazprom was tasked to ensure energy supply to the Olympic venues and the rapidly growing infrastructure of the Black Sea coast. At the same time, it was critically important to keep the ecosystem intact in the coastal area where millions of tourists go on for holiday every year. Gazprom has successfully accomplished this task. A unique facility of the Unified Gas Supply System was constructed, Dzhubga – Lazarevskoye – Sochi, the first submerged gas pipeline in Russia."
"The gas pipeline will allow active development of gasification in Sochi and the Tuapse District of the Krasnodar Krai, raising the living standards of the population and giving a powerful impetus to the resort business development, particularly enabling transition of the Black Sea health resorts to year-round operation. The Adler TPP will be among major gas consumers meeting over one-third of the forecast peak demand during the Olympic Games."
