    An agreement between Moscow and Belgrade to expand the Banatski Dvor underground gas storage facility in Serbia may be signed by the end of 2015, the Serbian ambassador to Russia said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Terzic observed that a corresponding memorandum on the doubling of Banatski Dvor's capacity to potentially store up to 1 billion cubic meters of natural gas was signed during a recent visit by Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic to Russia.

    Last week, Vucic arrived in Moscow for a three-day visit, where he met counterpart Dmitry Medvedev and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    "We are preparing the deals to expand the gas storage in Banatski Dvor, there will be a new gas storage in Itebej, a large amount of Russian gas can be stored there and this will be a factor of energy stability," Slavenko Terzic said, adding that an agreement on Banatski Dvor storage may be signed by the end of the year.
