“Gas deliveries from Russia to Europe continue growing. In the first half of 2014, Gazprom delivered 82.88 billion cu m to far-abroad countries,” Miller said.
“Compared to the same period of the previous year, the deliveries grew by 2.8%, even though 2013 was a record year in the company’s history. This vividly demonstrates that foreign consumers continue to make their choice in favor of the Russian gas,” Miller said.
Russian natural gas deliveries to Western Europe grew by 20% in 2013, year on year, to 127.05 billion cubic meters while natural gas supplies to Eastern and Central Europe increased by 4.3% to 34.43 billion cubic meters. Russia’s total natural gas exports to Europe grew by 16.3% to 161.48 billion cubic meters.
