Gazprom exceeds gas output plan
RBC, 23.01.2006, Moscow 19:58:43.Gazprom is working to meet the increasing demand for gas from both Russian and European consumers, Gazprom's official spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said. The holding is using all its gas extraction capacities, and its daily output exceeds the assignment by almost 85m cubic meters despite the extremely low temperatures at gas fields. Furthermore, Gazprom is daily taking almost 230m cubic meters of gas more than planned from its subsurface storages, and supplying record volumes of gas to Russian consumers and abroad. The gas supply system is operating at its full capacity, yet without failures.
