MOSCOW, January 26 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian gas major Gazprom urgently increased gas supplies to Greece, Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov told reporters on Thursday. “Greece, which has major problems over gas supplies through Turkey over a cold spell, has a sharp need in additional gas supplies higher than contract liabilities. Gazprom fulfils urgently this request completely,” Kupriyanov noted.
Gazprom earlier “repeatedly met urgent requests of partners, increasing the supplies higher that contracted daily supplies,” Kupriyanov pointed out.
In 2011 Russian gas supplies in Greece reached 2.9 billion cubic meters.
The Gazprom head office had a working meeting with Alexei Miller and chairman of the Greek party New Democracy Antonis Samaras on Thursday. The negotiators discussed the prospects for the development of Russian-Greek energy cooperation and the current situation in the Greek energy industry. The sides focused on gas supplies and the implementation of the South Stream gas project in the country.
Intergovernmental agreements were signed with Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Greece, Slovenia, Croatia and Austria to build the land part of the gas pipeline.
The development of the final feasibility study of the South Stream project was completed in the third quarter of 2011. The final feasibility study combined the feasibility study of the maritime part of the gas project and the feasibility study for the construction of sections of the gas pipeline through the countries in Southern and Central Europe.
