Gazprom to build gas trunkline in Nenets Autonomous Area

The Gazprom oil company will invest over 1 billion rubles in a project to build a gas trunkline in the Nenets Autonomous Area, Arctic-Info quotes Nenets Governor Igor Koshin as saying.  The pipeline will be built as part of a local gas supply program.

The pipeline will consist of several lines: Naryan-Mar-Ustye-Oksino with a branch to Pylemets, Pylemets-Velikovisochnoye with a branch to Labozhskoye, Oksino-Khongurei and Kamenka.

The Nenets authorities and Gazprom are discussing the technical aspects of the project, which will be launched following the negotiations.
