Gazprom has announced it will be securing “reliable” gas suppliers to consumers in Armenia this winter.
Gas reserves accumulation continues at the Abovyanskoye underground gas storage facility with the purpose of easing peak loads.
The news comes as Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Russian company’s Management Committee met with Armenian Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan last week.
The parties discussed co-operation in the gas sector, focusing on the preparations for the 2016/17 autumn/winter period.
In 2013, Gazprom and Gazprom Armenia signed the contract for up to 2.5 billion cubic meters of Russian gas to be supplied to the nation every year between 2014 and 2018.
Last year, the Russian energy giant supplied Armenia with 1.9 billion cubic meters of gas.
