ST. PETERSBURG, June 22 (Itar-Tass) - Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller met with British Minister of State for Energy Michael Fallon at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on Saturday, June 22, to discuss prospects for bigger Russian natural gas supplies to Great Britain.
Fallon said his country is interested in bigger gas supplies from Russia and expressed hope for broader cooperation including in such field as gas storage, power industry and infrastructure projects.
In 2012, Gazprom Group supplied 11.7 billion cubic metres of natural gas to Britain.
Gazprom has been participating in short-term trade in natural gas in Britain since 1999 and increasing gas supplies to that country since then.
Gazprom also supplies gas and electricity to British consumers through its 100-percent controlled company Gazprom Marketing & Trading Ltd. Last year, the company supplied 3 billion cubic metres of gas and 1.8 TWh of electricity.
Gazprom and its British partners are also studying the possibility of building an extra Nord Stream extension to Great Britain, President Vladimir Putin said earlier.
