MOSCOW, November 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s gas giant Gazprom is looking at possible supplies of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Vietnam from the Vladivostok-LNG project, Gazprom’s Information Department said in a statement after a meeting between Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam to Russia, Bui Dinh Dinh.
“Participants in the meeting discussed the status of the Russian-Vietnamese cooperation in the oil and gas sphere, in particular in the joint production of hydrocarbons and development of gas motor fuel market in Vietnam,” the statement wrote.
Documents on the LNG supplies and on the development of gas motor fuel market in Vietnam may be signed during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official visit to Vietnam on November 12, a representative of the sector told Itar-Tass.
The gas holding’s petroleum subsidiary, Gazprom Neft, plans to sign an agreement with PetroVietnam on oil export to Vietnam and on participation in Vietnamese oil refineries during the upcoming visit, Itar-Tass said earlier on the day.
Gazprom signed a cooperation agreement with Vietnam in 2006. In particular, the document focuses on the development of oil processing sphere and the expansion of the filling station network.
