Russian energy giant Gazprom is to boost gas projects in Belarus.
The company’s Chairman Alexey Miller and Belarus’ Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Semashko have agreed to increase underground gas storage (UGS) capacity in the country.
Both parties aim to increase the maximum gas delivery by 9.7% daily – up to 34 million cubic metres.
The operating gas reserve will be 1.07 billion cubic metres, the firm added.
Gazprom also plans to build 15 compressed natural gas (CNG) stations by 2020.
A project is currently being developed for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant, with the fuel to be used in cars and railway vehicles.
