But he has let know that counts on serious preferences. Negotiations have begun with mutual compliments: representatives “ Gazprom “ have declared that, despite presence at debt republic for gas at a rate of 700 million roubles, claims they have no, and Alexey Miller has thus underlined that “„ Gazprom “always feels in republic comfortably “. “ When there is a gas, we too feel ourselves comfortably “ - Murtaza Rakhimov, and the prime minister has responded on it - the minister of republic Raphael Bajdavletov has hastened to note results of management “ Gazprom “ the PULLING down as “ positive “.

Besides, mister Miller has declared to the press that “ Gazprom “ intend to build “ an industrial chain and with a number of the Ufa enterprises “. The theme of interest of concern to Ufa NPZ officially during visit, truth, did not rise any more, but as considers a source in government RB, to interest “ Gazprom “ Open Society " can first of all; Ufaneftehim “ making paraksilol - raw materials for “ poliefa “. As mister Rakhimov, in due course to this chain " has added; For the purpose of expansion of a circle of products developed in republic “ two more local enterprises - Open Society " can be connected; Soda “ and “ Rubber “. The last till the end of the year is under procedure of external supervision, but after it as have informed in the republic government, will be, most likely, under the reached arrangement is sold “ to Gazprom “.

In concern have expressed also intention to get in Bashkiria 12 GRS, constructed earlier on means of the local government.
Signed by the parties as a result of negotiations the frame agreement, truth, has included not all from these projects, having left a number while at level of intentions, and the main intrigue of stay of head “ Gazprom “ in Ufa - the destiny of a state block of shares the PULLING down - and remained not opened.

To restore then relations it was necessary by difficult negotiations. If and now the policy appears is more significant the business, the planned projects and can remain on a paper “ - one of representatives of a gas monopolist has underlined „“.
