MOSCOW, June 03. /ITAR-TASS/. The admission of other companies to pipeline gas exports will hurt Gazprom and Russia as a state, Gazprom’s Deputy CEO Alexander Medvedev said Tuesday.
“This is not in the interests of Gazprom and not in the interests of Russia as a state,” he said.
Igor Sechin, CEO of oil giant Rosneft which also has gas projects, said earlier that Rosneft may participate in laying of the Sila Sibiri (Power of Siberia) pipeline across the country’s Far East, and that Rosneft wants to pump gas through it.
Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said that the government may discuss admitting independent producers to pumping gas through Sila Sibiri at the next meeting of the presidential commission for the energy and power industries.
