MOSCOW, December 09, 23:53 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s gas giant Gazprom increased gas supplies to non-CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries by 33 percent in November 2013, as compared to the same period of the preceding year, and exported to these countries 14.2 billion cubic metres of natural gas, the company’s Information Department told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“Lately, European consumers have been demonstrating a higher demand for Russian gas, even without evident fall in weather temperatures in Europe. In November alone, the European gas demand doubled versus October [In October this year, gas supplies to Europe grew almost 17 percent as compared to the same month of 2012; the November figures increased by 33 percent],” the Gazprom’s Information Department said.
The department also pointed to the remaining trends in Europe to purchase Russian gas at outstripping rates.
