BRUSSELS, December 05, 7:03 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s gas monopoly Gazprom opened its office in the European Union’s capital - Brussels on Wednesday, the company’s press service reports.
The ceremony featured the company’s Deputy CEO Alexander Medvedev, Russia’s deputy minister of energy Anatoly Yanovsky, Ambassador to Belgium Alexander Romanov, Ambassador to the EU Vladimir Chizhov, Belgium’s officials, the European Parliament’s deputies and heads of European oil and gas companies.
“As a global energy company, Gazprom has a wide net of representations abroad and it will develop its presence both in major and in promising markets,” the press service said.
For over 40 years, Europe is the company’s major market. Gazprom supplies natural gas to 20 European countries and invests billions of euros in major trans-European infrastructure projects.
“We continue active dialogues with the institutes of the European Union, and the opening of Gazprom’s representation in the EU’s capital will make them more effective,” Alexander Medvedev said.
