MOSCOW, October 29. /TASS/. The Russian energy giant Gazprom will initiate talks with the new composition of the European Commission on using the capacities of the OPAL gas pipeline, Gazprom spokesman Sergey Kupriyanov said on Wednesday.
“The European Commission has failed to make a decision on the use of the OPAL gas pipeline capacities. Decisions have been postponed three times over the year. Last time, the decision was postponed to late October,” Kupriyanov said.
“Gazprom will initiate new talks with the newly elected composition of the European Commission, when it is ready for this. We’ll proceed from our initial position on the 100% utilization of the OPAL gas pipeline capacities,” the Gazprom spokesman said.
