MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS/. The construction of the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline is critical for satisfying European consumers’ increasing demand for Russian gas in the future taking into consideration declining production in Europe, Russia’s Gazprom said in a report published after negotiations between the company’s Chairman of management committee Alexey Miller and members of Shell’s executive committee Harry Brekelmans, Maarten Wetselaar and Ronan Cassidy.
The negotiations focused on a wide range of issues related to strategic partnership, the report said.
