“We’re in a dialogue with Gazprom,” the company’s press service said.
Earlier, OMV CEO Gerhard Roiss said Gazprom had not held consultations with OMV before Russia announced suspending the construction of the South Stream pipeline.
Roiss said he expected Gazprom to hold talks on South Stream.
The South Stream project with the price of €15.5 billion was designed to supply 67 billion cubic meters of gas every year. Austria expected first gas to run by South Stream in late 2016. The OMV company is Gazprom’s key partner in Austria over 40 years. In 2013 Gazprom supplied 5.23 billion cubic meters of gas to OMV.
