    During first 11 months of 2015, Gazprom exported 8.7 billion cubic meters of gas to the French republic, it is almost 32 percent more than was exported over the same period in 2014 (6.6 billion cubic meters), according to Gazprom.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's energy company Gazprom in January-November delivered 8.7 billion cubic meters of gas to France, which represents a 32-percent increase compared to the first 11 months of 2014, Gazprom said in a press release Wednesday.

    "During first 11 months [of 2015], Gazprom exported 8.7 billion cubic meters of gas to the French republic. This is almost 32 percent more than was exported over the same period in 2014 (6.6 billion cubic meters)," the press release reads.

    The company added that during a working visit to France on Wednesday, Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller met with Jean-Pierre Jouyet, who is French President Francois Hollande's chief of staff, and French Minister of the Economy, Industry and the Digital Sector Emmanuel Macron.

    The participants of the meeting noted that Gazprom has been a reliable supplier of natural gas to France for 40 years, successfully developing cooperation with France's Engie, one of the largest energy companies in Europe.

    Besides, Miller met Engie Deputy CEO and Chief Operating Officer Isabelle Kocher. At the meeting the sides reviewed the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project.

    The Nord Stream-2 project, which plans to use the original Nord Stream pipeline for 86-percent of the route before branching off, could provide up to 55 billion cubic meters of direct gas supplies from the Russian shores through the Baltic Sea to the coast of Germany.

    In September, Gazprom signed a shareholder agreement on the extension of the pipeline with the international energy companies BASF, E.ON, Engie, OMV and Shell.
