Russia, Norway discussing gas exports

Norwegian Energy Minister Tord Lien said his country is in talks over the possibility of supplying gas to Europe with Russia, TASS reported on Wednesday. Lien discussed the future gas supply and other common interests with his Russian counterpart Alexander Novak.

“We discussed common interests in Europe, as it is a very important consumer [of gas] both for Norway and Russia," stated Lien during the International Energy Forum in Algeria.

Novak also announced that the two sides discussed the possibility of a joint development of the Northern oil and gas fields. Earlier last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed the opening of the new crude field for commercial operation, known as Vostochno-Messoyakhskoe, located in the Arctic region. The president also noted another oil field is due to be developed soon.
