VUCIC AND MILLER DISCUSS DEVELOPMENT OF SERBIAN GAS MARKET

BELGRADE, 29 November 2017 (Beta) - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic met in Belgrade on Nov. 29 with the president of the Managing Board of Gazprom, Alexei Miller, and discussed the realization of the project of gas supplies to Serbia and the development of the Serbian gas market. According to the statement, they acknowledged a 28% increase in the consumption of gas in Serbia in the first ten months compared with the same period last year, which was an indication of the country's swifter economic progress. "This calls for work on further developing the gas transportation system, to enable secure gas supplies and meeting the growing needs of the Serbian market," the statement reads. Miller also announced Gazprom's readiness to participate in the development of new gas transport systems with Serbia, since the construction of the gas pipeline segment between Russia and Turkey would open the possibility for additional quantities of gas for countries of the region, including Serbia.
