“We are commissioning this pipeline before the winter season begins. Moscow and its suburbs annually consume 45 billion cubic meters. The bulk of gas is consumed in winter. Taking into account considerable volumes of gas supplies to the region, spells of extremely cold weather brought about the maximum loading of gas pipelines.

Capable of transmitting up to 130 million cubic meters, the Kasimovskoye UGS – Voskresensk CS trunkline will provide consumers with additional volumes of gas, thus entirely eliminating this problem. The trunkline will provide highly reliable and uninterrupted gas supply to Moscow and its suburbs,” said Alexey Miller, chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee.
