The meeting addressed the ongoing and future cooperation between the companies, including gas supplies. It was noted that back in early November Austria had beaten its record for Russian gas imports set in 2005 at 6.8 billion cubic meters. According to estimates, from January 1 through December 21, 2017, Gazprom delivered to Austria 8.25 billion cubic meters of gas, a rise of 2.4 billion cubic meters (40.7 per cent) against the same period of last year.
