BEIJING, November 9 (RIA Novosti) — Russia and China have discussed a new project on pipeline gas supplies to China from the Russia's Far East, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said Sunday.
"In the medium-term perspective there is one more new route which is now under negotiations with China, these are the pipeline gas deliveries from the Far East," Miller told journalists commenting on the bilateral documents signed by Russia and China Sunday at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing.
Russia and China have signed 17 documents, including the memorandum on the delivery of Russian natural gas to China via the so-called western route, the priority project for the gas cooperation between the two countries.
According to Miller, gas exports to China were set at 30 billion of cubic meters over a span of 30 years.
On Sunday, executives of Russian and Chinese energy companies met in Beijing to discuss the signing of bilateral agreements in the sphere of oil and gas trade. The meeting was held in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.
