The Gazprom headquarters yesterday hosted a working meeting between Alexey Miller, chairman of the company's management committee and Vladimir Miklushevsky, governor of the Primorye Territory.
The parties discussed the large scale activities carried out by Gazprom in the region as well as the prospects for cooperation. Special attention was paid to the LNG plant construction project (Vladivostok-LNG). It was noted that the implementation of this project would be highly conducive to the Primorye Territory development.
Memorandum of understanding
In the course of the meeting Alexey Miller and Vladimir Miklushevsky signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and Cooperation while implementing the Vladivostok-LNG project. The document stipulates that the parties will take comprehensive measures for executing the project within the preset time frame. In particular, the Primorye Territory Administration will provide assistance to Gazprom in obtaining necessary approvals and registering ownership rights for real estate facilities to be constructed and land parcels to be purchased.
The parties will prepare and sign a joint action plan for implementing the LNG plant project.
The meeting also addressed the gasification process ongoing in the Primorye Territory under a programme effective from 2012 through 2015. At present, design and estimate documents are being prepared for five gas pipeline branches, five gas distribution stations and six inter-settlement gas pipelines in the Dalnerechensky, Ussuriysky and Spassky Districts, as well as in the municipalities of Bolshoy Kamen and Fokino.
