HANOI, October 5 (Itar-Tass) - Vietnam’s government praises cooperation between PetroVietnam Oil and Gas State Corporation and Russia’s giant Gazprom, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said.
At the meeting with Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller, who is currently in Hanoi on a working visit, Nguyen Tan Dung said Vietnam was ready to provide any support for further expansion of cooperation.
“Cooperation in the fuel and energy sector is one of the priorities in strategic partnership between Vietnam and the Russian Federation,” the premier said.
He lauded Miller’s visit to Vietnam and gave a high assessment to the talks between PetroVietnam and Gazprom.
Vietnam will do its best to continue promoting interaction in the fuel and energy sector with Russia by making it more effective and expanding the scale, Nguyen Tan Dung said.
PetroVietnam and Gazprom cooperate under the long-term contract, which envisages developing and processing hydrocarbons.
Miller and PetroVietnam Director-General Do Van Hau said they started cooperation on a new direction - gas engine fuel. They signed an agreement on key principles of the activity of a joint venture to carry out a project on using natural gas as gas engine fuel on the territory of Vietnam.
