VIENNA, September 11. /TASS/. Russia and the European Commission discussed the Nord Stream-2 and Turkish Stream projects at a meeting in Vienna, CEO of Russia’s gas giant Gazprom, Alexey Miller, said on Friday after bilateral talks involving Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and European Commission Vice President for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic.
Miller said he was confident Nord Stream-2 would be in line with the European laws, obviously referring to the Third Energy Package.
"We informed the European Commission about the documents signed in Vladivostok with our European partners. We highlighted that the project will be implemented strictly in compliance with the European legislation, and our joint venture with European companies will be a side in consultations with the EU," Miller said.
However he said the issue of loading the OPAL gas pipeline [the mainland extension of Nord Stream across Germany - TASS] has not yet been settled but could be resolved soon.
"We have also informed the European Commission about our negotiations with Turkey on the Turkish Stream and discussed possible supplies via this route," Miller said.
Another topic discussed at the meeting was transit of Russian gas via Ukraine after 2019 [when the current transit agreement expires - TASS], he said adding that transit of certain volumes of gas would be continued but Gazprom would not sign a new gas transit contract "on unacceptable terms."
