Russia’s Gazprom and LUKOIL plan to boost cooperation within the General Agreement on Strategic Partnership, the Russian gas monopoly said following a working meeting between Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller and LUKOIL President Vagit Alekperov in St Petersburg on April 23.
“The parties discussed the current matters of interest and further avenues for cooperation within the General Agreement on Strategic Partnership,” Gazprom said in a press release.
Gazprom and LUKOIL are bound by the 2014–2024 General Agreement on Strategic Partnership, pursuant to which, among other things, LUKOIL supplies gas into Gazprom’s gas transmission system. The parties also take part in the development of the Tsentralnoye field in the Caspian Sea.
Gazprom’s Sosnogorsk Gas Processing Plant is being provided with associated petroleum gas from the northern group of fields developed by LUKOIL-Komi. Prior to the start of those deliveries, Gazprom and LUKOIL implemented a joint project for rearranging the gas supply scheme for consumers within the Pechora industrial cluster.
