Russian giant Gazprom, Edison of Italy and the Greek DEPA on Tuesday discussed the optimal route of gas exports from Russia to Greece and further to Italy.

The meeting was attended by Gazprom’s head Alexey Miller, Marc Benayoun, executive vice president of EDF and CEO of Edison, and Theodoros Kitsakos, CEO of DEPA, according to the company statement.

The participants stressed that the companies’ cooperation would contribute to development of additional gas transmission capacities in Europe and would reinforce energy security of the southern part of the continent.

On February 24, 2016, Gazprom, Edison, and DEPA signed the memorandum of understanding on natural gas deliveries from Russia across the Black Sea and third countries to Greece and from Greece to Italy in order to set up a southern route for Russian gas supplies to Europe.
