SOCHI (Russia) (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Russian Deputy Energy Minister Anatoly Yanovsky said that Russia and China were in talks on the issue of gas deliveries via the western route and discussed possible price of gas supplies.
"Tomorrow the consultations on the issue would continue between Mr. Zhang Gaoli and head of Gazprom Alexey Miller," Dvorkovich told reporters.
He added that it would be possible to speak about any significant changes on the issue only after the Tuesday talks.
In 2015, Gazprom and the CNPC signed a supplementary agreement on constructing a second "western route" pipeline. The Power of Siberia-2 has a planned annual capacity of 30 billion cubic meters, with possible second and third legs bringing annual capacity up to 100 billion cubic meters.
