Gazprom ready to deliver gas to freezing Europe
At the same time, infrastructure for supplies would not cost European taxpayers anything, Deputy Chairman of Gazprom Management Committee Alexander Medvedev said, TASS reported.
He recalled that last year, Gazprom exported almost 180 bln cubic meters of gas to non-CIS countries.
"Our gas was and still remains the most popular gas in the European market. According to preliminary estimates of analysts of Eurogas, gas consumption in Europe last year grew by 36%, even though the European economy is recovering slowly, its growth will not exceed 2%," he said.
Medvedev noted that reduction of coal consumption and investment in renewable energy are among the European market trends.
He noted that Europe does not have enough of their own resources to meet their needs. ■
