MOSCOW, December 6. /TASS/. The trilateral gas meeting of representatives of the Russian Federation, Ukraine and the European Union will be held on December 9 in Brussels, a representative of Russia’s Energy Ministry said Tuesday, while the meeting non-OPEC countries on oil output optimization will be held on December 10 in Vienna.
"We officially confirm that on December 9 the trilateral gas talks (will be held - TASS) in Brussels, on December 10 - OPEC and non-OPEC (countries will meet - TASS) in Vienna," he said.
In November, European Commission Vice-President for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic and Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak agreed to hold trilateral talks on the gas issue and resume the format of trilateral gas talks with Ukraine.
The talks are expected to mainly focus on extra supplies of 1.5-4 bln cubic meters of gas from Russia to Ukraine for passing the winter season. According to Novak, the supplies will be strictly in conformity with the existing contracts signed back in 2009. In Brussels the sides will dwell upon the needed volumes and delivery schedule.
The talks between representatives of OPEC member-states and non-OPEC nations will focus on the decision to cut crude oil production. Earlier OPEC secretary general Mohammad Barkindo said the cartel had invited 14 non-OPEC countries to the meeting. Previously, Venezuelan Oil Minister Eulogio del Pino said that around 20 non-OPEC states, including Kazakhstan, Oman and a few Latin American countries would take part in the talks on crude output reduction.
