The Gazprom headquarters hosted today a working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company’s Management Committee and Slavenko Terziс, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Serbia to the Russian Federation.

The parties discussed Russian gas deliveries to Serbia. According to preliminary figures for 2015, the gas deliveries grew by 23.6 per cent to 1.7 billion cubic meters.

Special attention was given to the efficient functioning of the Banatski Dvor underground gas storage (UGS) facility and its role in securing a reliable supply of Russian gas to consumers in Serbia, Hungary, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was highlighted that the UGS facility with a working gas capacity of 450 million cubic meters was 100 per cent full by the 2015–2016 autumn/winter period.

The parties also addressed the prospects of expanding the UGS facility pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding between Gazprom and Srbijagas signed in 2015.
