The visit involved a flight along the proposed route of the Soyuz Vostok gas pipeline, which will become an extension of Russia's Power of Siberia 2 gas pipeline in Mongolian territory.
Vitaly Markelov and Sainbuyan Amarsaikhan, Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia, held a meeting of the Joint Working Group of Gazprom and the Government of Mongolia.
In December 2019, Gazprom and the Government of Mongolia signed a Memorandum of Understanding.
A Joint Working Group was created under the Memorandum.
In early 2021, a special-purpose vehicle named Gazoprovod Soyuz Vostok was registered in Mongolia.
The company was established with the purpose of performing design and survey works and conducting a feasibility study regarding the construction project for a gas trunkline to supply Russian gas across Mongolia to China.
The export capacity of the Power of Siberia 2 gas pipeline might become more than 1.3 times higher than that of Power of Siberia.
