Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, has made a working visit to Armenia as a member of the delegation headed by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
The meeting with Hovik Abrahamyan, Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, addressed, inter alia, bilateral co-operation in the energy sector. The parties commended Gazprom 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 modernise Armenia's gas transmission system and ensure a substantially more reliable gas supply to consumers.
Alexey Miller and Vardan Arutyunyan, Chairman of the Management Committee and Director General of Gazprom Armenia, have signed an Addendum to the contract for Russian gas supply to Armenia from 2014 - 2018.
The signing ceremony was held in the presence of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan.
“We are strengthening co-operation 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.
