VILNIUS, February 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The Lithuanian government and Gazprom will draft a program within a month to negotiate the price of Russian gas for Lithuania, Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius and Gazprom Export General Director Alexander Medvedev said on Tuesday.
“We had a very productive meeting,” the Gazprom representative said. In his words, an agreement to cut the price and to mount the delivery of Russian gas to the biggest Lithuanian gas consumer, nitrogen fertilizer manufacturer Ahema Group was agreed on before the visit. “A competitive gas price implies new jobs for the residents of Lithuania,” he said.
The sides also focused on the planned transformation of the Lithuanian gas sector in compliance with the EU anti-monopoly requirements. “Hopefully, we will find mutually acceptable constructive solutions,” Kubilius said. Lithuania wants Gazprom not only to sell but also to transport gas on its market, he said. “We realize Gazprom's concern regarding gas transit to the Kaliningrad region,” he said.
