Gazprom’s SeverEnergia Sale

Gazprom will sell its controlling stake in SeverEnergia, a Russian gas project with Eni and Enel, to a venture that its oil unit has with Novatek, Gazprom said Tuesday.

The participation of Novatek, which has fields and gas condensate processing facilities in West Siberia, will help lower costs and speed up development of SeverEnergia’s deposits, it said in an e-mailed statement. Gazprom Neft, the oil unit, will help develop the project’s crude resources, the company said.

“We consider the acquisition of fields like these in the Yamal-Nenets region, near gas transportation infrastructure and Novatek processing units, to be highly promising,” Novatek spokesman Mikhail Lozovoi said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
