ATHENS, February 2 (RIA Novosti) - Greece could begin transiting Russian natural gas, the head of Russian energy giant Gazprom said Thursday. "We spoke about gas deliveries to Greece, and that Greece could become a transit country for Russian natural gas," Alexei Miller told journalists after a meeting with the Greek development minister and prime minister.
Miller said prospective investment by Gazprom in the Greek energy infrastructure would also be discussed. "This relates both to the gas distribution system and phosphoric fertilizer production, as well as other energy and industrial facilities," he said.
Miller said Russia and Greece would consider expanding the contract on natural gas supplies to Greece after 2016.
