Gazprom forecasts that the average export price of gas to Europe in 2017 will be $180-190 per thousand cubic meters. This was stated by Deputy Chairman of Gazprom Alexander Medvedev.
Last year this figure was $167 per thousand cubic meters. While Gazprom still expects to increase in 2017 exports to Europe. “The level of exports could even exceed the level of last year, the first quarter has confirmed our forecasts,” – said Medvedev.
According to him, Gazprom’s revenues from gas exports this year could grow to $35 billion from $30 billion last year.
He has previously stated that the export to Europe in 2017 may exceed 180 billion cubic meters.
In 2016, Gazprom has increased gas supplies to far abroad by 12.5% compared to 2015 – to more 179,3 billion cubic meters, which was a historical high.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that Gazprom increased the amount of requirements to NAK Naftogaz Ukraine in Stockholm arbitration with more than $5.3 billion to $37 billion.
