Commenting on today's summit held via a video link, the EEC noted: the heads of state of the Eurasian Economic Union were informed about the progress in aligning the approaches to pricing and tariff formation in the common gas market of the Eurasian Economic Union and to setting the tariff for the transportation of gas from third countries for domestic consumption. "At the moment, concepts and programs for the formation of common markets for gas, oil and petroleum products have been approved, and measures to implement them are currently underway," the press service emphasized. “As the EAEU develops the common gas market it will pay particular attention to pricing, bolstering exchange trade and ensuring equal access to gas transportation systems. In particular, we are working on the procedure for exchange trade together with the governments of the participating countries and national exchanges. The common gas market is planned to be launched from 2025."
