Gazprom and Ruhrgas discuss Northern European gas pipeline project

Nov 19, 2002 01:00 AM

Head of Gazprom Alexei Miller and CEO of Ruhrgas Burckhard Bergmann discussed cooperation in implementing the Northern European gas pipeline project. Future joint projects in the Balkans were also discussed, Gazprom announced.
The parties will continue consultations on the Northern European gas pipeline project in December 2002. Gazprom's executive board confirmed the schedule for implementing the Northern European gas pipeline project.

Under the project, a gas pipeline will be laid on the bed of the Baltic Sea. Also, sea gas pipeline branches will be built to deliver gas to the Kaliningrad region, Finland, Sweden and Denmark. Gas will also be supplied to Great Britain. This project will connect Russian gas pipelines to European ones.
At the initial stage, the Northern European gas pipeline will transport gas extracted from gas fields in the Nadym-Pur-Tazoivsky district (the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District,) and, subsequently, from Yamal, the Obsko-Tazovskaya Bay and Shtokmanovskoye gasfields. The first flows of gas are to be transported in 2007. The pipeline is to be brought to design capacity in 2009.

Miller also met with First Deputy President of KazMunaiGaz Timur Kulibayev to discuss the work of the joint venture KazRosGaz.
Miller and Kulibayev also discussed the implementation of the project to deliver gas to the Orenburg gas-chemical complex from the Karachaganak gas condensate field in Kazakhstan, as well as the development of contract relations between Gazprom and KazMunaiGaz, including the conclusion of long-term contracts to transport Karachaganak gas to the Orenburg gas-chemical complex. Miller is to visit Kazakhstan shortly.
