The history of the international conference devoted to the energy cooperation of Russia and EU in the gas sector includes ten years. Russian gas society organizes this event with the support of Gazprom, since 2006. Initially, the host city was Berlin, but in recent years the conference moved to Brussels as the decision-making center on energy policy of the EU. Over the years of its existence, the international conference "Energy dialogue Russia-EU: gas aspect", has become well-known, respected and relevant platform to conduct sharp but constructive discussions on the most actual and complex issues of relations between Russia and the European Union in the gas sector.

The political complications of recent times have resulted in 2015m, on the initiative of the European partners of the Russian gas society a meeting of representatives of the European Union of gas industry and the Russian gas society in a small circle behind closed doors and without press coverage had been hosted instead of the Xth international conference. The Russian side is always ready to use all platforms to discuss the situation. It believes that the partnership of Russia and EU in ensuring energy security on the European continent in the long term has no alternative. However, as the President of the RGS, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on energy Pavel Zavalniy repeatedly emphasized, “we believe that the issues of cooperation in energy security should be discussed not behind the scenes, but in an open dialogue between the parties, as this problem affects millions of people."

That is why the Russian gas society made the decision to arrange the tenth conference in June in Berlin.

The event starts on 23 June at 9.30 a.m. 

The press-conference starts at 11.30 a.m.
