Gazprom Signs Long-term Contract for Russian Gas Supply to Armenia


Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, visited Armenia as a member of the delegation headed by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
At the meeting, Alexey Miller and Vardan Arutyunyan, Chairman of the Management Committee and Director General of Gazprom Armenia, signed an Addendum to the Contract for Russian gas supply to Armenia from 2014 to 2018. The signing ceremony was held in the presence of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan.
The meeting addressed inter alia bilateral cooperation in the energy sector and Gazprom was commended for its contribution to the development of the Armenian gas industry.
Particular reference was made to the General Gas Supply and Gasification Scheme of the Republic of Armenia developed by Gazprom. It was noted that the implementation of the Scheme would help modernize Armenia’s gas transmission system and ensure a substantially more reliable gas supply to consumers.
“We are strengthening cooperation with our Armenian partners. Gazprom is promptly responding to the increasing gas demand in Armenia and is ready to ramp up the supply of natural gas, including from Iran under swap deals. Moreover, the Company will further contribute to the development of Armenia’s gas transmission infrastructure,” said Alexey Miller.
