The meeting between Alexey Miller (Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee), Marc Benayoun (Executive Vice President of EDF and CEO of Edison SpA) and Theodoros Kitsakos (CEO of DEPA SA) saw discussions regarding an optimal route of Russian gas exports to the south of Europe.

DEPA Group focuses on purchase, sale and supply of natural gas to industrial consumers and households in Greece. Edison SpA focuses on procurement, exploration, production and sale of hydrocarbons.

The parties discussed their ongoing co-operation within the Memorandum of Understanding. In particular, they spoke about determining an optimal route of gas exports from Russia to Greece and further to Italy.

The participants stressed that the companies’ co-operation would contribute to development of additional gas transmission capacities in Europe and would reinforce energy security of the southern part of the continent.
