The Gazprom headquarters hosted today a working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Management Committee and Sherali Gul, Minister of Energy and Industry, Republic of Tajikistan.
During the meeting the parties discussed the operational issues related to the present status and future prospects of Gazprom's projects in Tajikistan.
In particular, Sherali Gul asked Alexey Miller to speed up the drilling of Tajikistan's deepest prospecting well, Shakhrinav-1p, in the Sarykamysh licensed area. Drilling operations have been underway since late 2010. So far, over a half of the total well depth (6,300 meters) has been drilled.
In his turn, Alexey Miller appreciated the attention paid by Tajikistan's senior officials to the cooperation between Russia and Tajikistan in the fuel and energy sector as well as the future prospects for joint efforts in the gas sector. He also promised to render comprehensive assistance in implementing this project.
