MINSK, December 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s national gas utility Gazprom is interested to build another line of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline via Belarus, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Tuesday.
“There is all infrastructure needed for this pipeline, gas pumping stations have been built. As a matter of fact, the only thing to do is to lie a pipe,” he said, referring to the pronouncements Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller made during his recent visit to Belarus.
According to the Belarusian leader, the construction of this pipeline will cost next to nothing, if compared with the construction of either the North Stream of the South Stream.
The Belarusian president also said the sales of Beltransgaz to Russia had turned out profitable for his country. “First of all, Minsk has ensured natural gas supplies at a price that is although higher than in Russia, but still lower than, say in Ukraine,” he noted.
