Western route of gas supplies to China to be most promising transit corridor - Gazprom CEO

Yamal is not merely a new center of gas production. It is a richest gas bearing area that will supply consumers with gas for more than 100 years, Alexei Miller said

MOSCOW, April 28. /TASS/. The so-called western route of Russian gas supplies to China is going to be the most promising and significant gas transit corridor, Alexei Miller, CEO of Russian gas giant Gazprom, said on Sunday.

"Yamal is not merely a new center of gas production. It is a richest gas bearing area that will supply consumers with gas for more than 100 years. And the fact that Yamal is the richest gas bearing rea means that the ‘western’ route of supplies of Russian gas to China may be seen as the most promising and significant gas transit corridor. That is why Yamal has all the grounds to become a center of gas supplies to both the West and the East. First of all, to China," he told journalists.
