In early April 2016, Armenia and Russia signed an intergovernmental agreement, according to which Russia reduced the price of gas supplied to Armenia from $165 to $150 per thousand cubic meters.

Russian natural gas deliveries to Armenia are expected to grow to 2.1 billion cubic meters by the year-end, Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller told in Yerevan on Tuesday.

He said deliveries in the 1st 9 months of 2017 grew by more than 200 million cubic when compared to the same time span of 2016.

«This is an indication that the Armenian economy is advancing since the growth in gas consumption always means an economic growth. We are sure that the volumes of deliveries will grow from year to year,» Miller said.

Alexey Miller said Gazprom Armenia will continue implementing social responsibility projects in Armenia.
