“The parties addressed the progress with the project for constructing the Power of Siberia gas pipeline to supply Russian natural gas to China (eastern route),” Gazprom said in a statement.
The meeting touched on the implementation of the memorandum of understanding which Gazprom signed with CNPC in September this year on the project for supplying natural gas from the Russian Far East to China via a pipeline.
Possible cooperation on gas-fired power projects was also discussed during the meeting.
