CEO of Gazprom Alexey Miller held an enlarged conference in Yerevan on Wednesday. The key topic was Gazprom Armenia's integration into Gazprom Group.
Miller said that Gazprom Armenia is a full member of Gazprom Group and will work according to its rules. He pointed out the huge progress observed in Armenia's gas supply sector in the last years (from 21% in 2002 to 96% in 2014). "This is much better than in many regions of Russia. This comes from understanding that gas supply is the basis of stable social-economic development," Miller said.
He pointed out a number of projects carried out on a joint basis over the past decade, particularly, 5th unit of Hrazdan TPP and Iran-Armenia gas pipeline.
Concerning plans, Miller said that Gazprom is planning to make Gazprom Armenia a highly efficient company with ambitious goals.
In the end, Miller instructed Gazprom and Gazprom Armenia managers to organize Gazprom Armenia's effective work within Gazprom Group.
