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.
