Russian gas is supplied to the Netherlands under a 20-year contract signed with Gasunie in September 2000. The first deliveries started on October 1, 2001 via the Yamal – Europe gas pipeline system. After restructuring of Gasunie, the GasTerra company has become Gazprom Export’s partner under the contract for natural gas supply to the Netherlands.

In 2019, Gazprom supplied 8.87 bcm of gas to the Netherlands.

The basis of Gazprom’s business cooperation with Gasunie were laid by the framework agreement of 1996. Along with the Russian natural gas supply to the Netherlands, the agreement covers various forms of partnership in transmission, storage, enhancing flexibility of gas supply etc. In 2005, Gasunie was divided into a gas trading company (currently GasTerra) and a gas transportation company that inherited the name Gasunie Transport Services B.V. The contract for the Russian natural gas supply was transferred to GasTerra B.V. (50% of the company’s shares are held by the state, other shareholders are ExxonMobil and Shell with 25% share each).
