The Head of the Commercial Representation of Russia in Azerbaijan, Yuri Shedrin, said on January 25 that the proposals of Gazprom include using the Azerbaijan gas reserves for warehousing the Russian gas to export the fuel to the south regions of Russia.
According to him, Azerbaijan has great experience and potential in gas reserve.
