Gazprom’s export of natural gas to the German market jumped 15.7 percent in the January-May period in 2017, in comparison to the corresponding quarter last year. 

In total, Gazprom delivered 22.3 billion cubic meters of gas to Germany, Russian giant’s head Alexey Miller and Uniper’s CEO Klaus Schaefer, noted during their meeting in St. Petersburg.

In 2016, Gazprom’s gas supplies to Germany hit 49.8 billion cubic meters, a 10 percent increase compared to 2015.

The two parties also discussed the cooperation on the Nord Stream 2 project, saying that “the signing of the financing agreements was crucial to the implementation of the project.”

Nord Stream 2 is the construction project for a gas pipeline with the annual capacity of 55 billion cubic meters from Russia to Germany across the Baltic Sea. The project is implemented by Nord Stream 2, where Gazprom is the sole shareholder.

In April Nord Stream 2, Engie, OMV, Royal Dutch Shell, Uniper and Wintershall Holding signed the financing agreements for the Nord Stream 2 project.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.
