"We have studied the possibility of gas supplies by pipeline to Japan but for a number of reasons, including environmental [concerns] and due to the protection of fisheries, this project is no longer viewed by us as viable." Gazprom will not go ahead with a project to supply natural gas to Japan via pipeline, Deputy Chairman of the Management Committee of Gazprom Alexander Medvedev announced during a press conference in Moscow, Tuesday. Focusing on the expansion of the Russian energy giant's markets into East Asia, Medvedev stated that while Japan is one of Gazprom's top priorities, the pipeline project was not viable because of environmental concerns, amongst other reasons. He added that all projects implemented by the company were approached with particular attention to environmental conservation measures. Regarding the Chinese market, Director General of Gazprom Export Elena Burmistrova said that both Beijing and Moscow were still discussing a gas contract but were yet to sign any documents, and that it was still to be determined whether payment will be made in yuan and roubles.
