A meeting took place in Moscow today between Gazprom directors and representatives of the Bashkiria Republic on a new cooperation agreement. As a Rosbalt correspondent was informed at the Fuel and Energy Department of the Bashkirian government, the delegation from Bashkiria is being led by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry in the Republic Sergei Yefremov.
According to Vasily Melnichuk, head of the fuel and energy department, they will discuss a model agreement that was sent by the Gazprom management to all the regions. Most of the points included in this agreement were actually completed in Bashkiria last year and now the details are being discussed. For example, the Bashkirian delegation is expected to propose that Gazprom completes the gasification of the republic.
