Russia Shuns LNG Options for Europe
Russian energy company Gazprom shouldn’t dilute its position in the Asia-Pacific by sending liquefied natural gas to Europe, the energy minister said.
Gazprom Chairman Alexei Miller met last week with Chinese energy officials to discuss LNG from the Vladivostok project on Russia’s eastern coast. Gazprom in 2007 adopted a program to get more natural gas to Chinese and other Asian markets.
Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Gazprom should remain focused on conventional natural gas deliveries to Europe so as to preserve its LNG position in the Asia-Pacific region.
