  • Ukraine continues to press for reduced imports of Russian gas and receives first deliveries from RWE
  • Gazprom appears set to expand its underground gas storage facilities and gas transmission capacity in Belarus
  • Slovenia and Bulgaria confirm their final investment decisions for the South Stream project, as Gazprom"s partners also take the final investment decision on the offshore section, while Gazprom signs a new gas supply contract with Bulgargaz
  • Turkish regulators approve Gazprom"s new long-term supply contracts with private Turkish energy companies
  • Gazprom demonstrates the potential for shipping LNG from Europe to Japan as it charters the first LNG supertanker to traverse the Arctic during winter
