The seventh ministerial meeting of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF)
The seventh ministerial meeting of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) will be held in Moscow on Tuesday, the Russian energy ministry said in a statement.

The GCEF was established in Tehran in 2001 and includes Russia, Iran and other leading gas exporters, which account for about 73% of the world's gas reserves and 42% of production. The group has yet to adopt a charter and lacks a formal membership structure.

Energy ministers from 9 member states - Algeria, Bolivia, Venezuela, Egypt, Iran, Qatar, Libya, Trinidad and Tobago, Equatorial Guinea and Nigeria - are expected to attend the event. Ministers from Norway, which has observer status, and Kazakhstan, which is a guest participant, are also expected.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is also due to attend the meeting.

The ministers are expected to discuss and adopt a charter for the GECF and other formal preparations necessary to formally establish the organization.

It was previously reported that the GECF could have its secretariat in Russia's second-largest city of St. Petersburg, and elect a secretary general in a year's time.
