Gazprom Fills Libya Gap

Gazprom stepped up gas supplies to Italy to 2.5 times normal levels after Italy's gas supplies from Libya were cut off, a Gazprom source said Monday.

Italy's Eni said Feb. 22 that it shut the Greenstream pipe that carries Libyan gas into Sicily and on Feb. 23 said it would increase flows from the north.

Also Monday, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with other foreign ministers in Geneva to discuss an international response to the violence unfolding in Libya amid a popular uprising.
