Gazprom Celebrates Completion of Kajaran-Ararat Section of Gas Pipeline

Today in Yerevan, led by Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company's Management Committee, a Gazprom delegation took part in celebrations on the occasion of welding the last joint of the Kajaran-Ararat section of the Iran-Armenia gas pipeline.

At the event Alexey Miller met with the Armenian President Serzh Sarksyan. The parties highly evaluated the multilateral cooperation between Gazprom and Armenia and expressed their confidence in further expansion of the partnership.

"Our cooperation with Armenia is of a long-term strategic nature based on the relations of mutual trust and the partnership equally beneficial for both parties. Gazprom not only sells gas to Armenia, but is also dealing with its transportation and marketing on the Republican territory.

"Above this, we have extensive plans in the power energy sector. For over ten years now, the Russian-Armenian company ArmRosgazprom, the constructor of the Kajaran-Ararat section, has been successfully functioning. I am convinced, the new gas trunkline will significantly enhance the security of gas supply to Armenia and make a substantial contribution to the gas infrastructure development of the entire region," stated Alexey Miller.
