The Gazprom headquarters today hosted a working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company's Management Committee and Djoomart Otorbaev, Prime Minister of the Kyrgyzstan Republic.
It was pointed out that over the short period of time since Gazprom Kyrgyzstan had joined Gazprom Group, significant progress has been achieved in the cooperation between the parties. In particular, Gazprom started supplying natural gas to the Republic as well as carrying out a whole range of maintenance and repair activities to prepare the local gas networks.
The meeting considered the potential of the cooperation in a wide spectrum of business areas. Among other things, it will create more enabling conditions for setting tariffs for consumers.
The parties also discussed the stepwise exploration program for the Kugart and Eastern Mailu-Suu IV blocks. They also addressed the outlooks for Gazprom's participation in advancing the petroleum product market and the power generation industry of the Kyrgyzstan Republic.
Another item on the agenda was the development of gas transmission and distribution infrastructure of Kyrgyzstan. It was pointed out that the relevant facilities in the Republic were well rundown. In this regard, Gazprom is working out the General Gas Supply and Gasification Scheme of Kyrgyzstan until 2030. The document envisages large-scale reconstruction and upgrade of gas transmission, underground gas storage and distribution facilities.
