MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. Gazprom has begun consultations on gas supplies to India with the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas of India and Indian companies. The meeting of the second working group is scheduled for September 13 in New Delhi. The meeting will be attended by the Deputy Chairman of Gazprom Board of Directors Vitaly Markelov, Deputy Energy Minister Yury Sentyurin told reporters on Monday.
"We have held two groups of the meeting of the Russian-Indian group for assessing gas supplies’ capacity from Russia to India. Now we begin consultations at the level of Gazprom with the relevant ministries and with the Indian operating companies," Deputy Minister said, responding to a question about the status of the Russian-Indian talks on gas supplies.
According to him, the issue of gas supply to India is still at the stage of "examining the feasibility", and it may take "another year at least."
"The research work is in progress. Today it is at the stage of theoretical understanding of this opportunity. The route has not yet been chosen, we are still examining the feasibility. So far, all this is difficult to d, as Russia and India do not have common borders, and there is plenty of transit countries, there are security issues in Afghanistan," he explained.
Earlier Sentyurin said that India is interested in gas supplies from Russia in the amount of up to 25 billion cubic meters per year. The sides consider gas delivery options through pipeline, as well as through swap schemes, he said.
