PM Tsipras to Meet with Gazprom's Miller on Tuesday

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will meet on Tuesday at 16:00 with the head of Gazprom Alexei Miller at the Maximos Mansion. Earlier in the day (14:00) Miller will have a meeting with Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis.
According to a ministry's official announcement the meetings will focus on current energy issues.
The meeting is held a few days after Tsipras' official visit to Moscow and his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian political leadership.
The main issue of the discussion is the boosting of the new pipeline that will bring natural gas from Turkey via Greece to Central Europe, an issue for which the ministry's sources said that the possibility of the signing of the initial agreement very soon is visible.
The investment for the construction of the Greek section of the pipeline is estimated at 2 billion euros and its implementation will lead to the creation of thousands of work positions as well as to the development of the competition, the geopolitical upgrading and the improvement of the supply safety for the Greek market.
The meeting's agenda also includes the participation of Russian companies in the hydrocarbons research in the Ionian Sea and the South Cretan Sea as well as the existing contract between DEPA (Greek Natural Gas Company) and Gazprom for natural gas supply.
