GAZPROM - October 4, Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Rainer Seele, Chairman of the Executive Board of OMV, signed at the 8th St. Petersburg International Gas Forum a Memorandum on Strategic Cooperation.
The document envisages the creation of a Joint Coordinating Committee on collaboration in the natural gas sector, both upstream and downstream, science and technology as well as staff training.
"Today, we continue to work toward the strengthening of Russian-Austrian relationship in the gas sector in the long term. With the newly-signed Memorandum, we will consolidate our joint activities with OMV in the areas of ongoing and potential cooperation into a single coordination center and bring it to a brand-new level," said Alexey Miller.
"We have already been receiving reliable gas supplies from Russia for more than 50 years. Thanks to our strong partnership with Gazprom, Russia has become one of our main partner countries, and now I am delighted that we are able to take a further step together. We will continue to expand our successful existing relationship not only on an economic level, but also on a cultural and social level," said Rainer Seele.
