Relevance of the Company’s Activities to the Interests of Gas Importers 

The company guarantees reliable and sustainable gas supply to importing countries. The history of gas supplies to Europe demonstrates that despite the turbulent political transformations both in consumer countries and in the former Soviet Union, we have always been capable of ensuring uninterrupted gas supply to our clients.

Russian Gas and Europe
The shares of gas and renewables in the European energy mix are expected to increase, amid continuing decline of  oil and coal. Given Europe’s limited domestic gas reserves and decline in indigenous production, the European countries are likely to import more gas from third countries. Gazprom Export is ready to contribute to meeting the European demand by drawing on the huge potential of the Russian natural gas industry.
