RosUkrEnergo Court Win

RosUkrEnergo, the gas trader half-owned by Gazprom, won an arbitration decision in Stockholm to collect about $532 million from Hungary’s Emfesz.

RosUkrEnergo was awarded $421 million for nonpayment of gas, $106 million in credit interest and 3.4 million euros ($5 million) in legal costs in the March 17 decision, Group DF, which controls Ukrainian businessman Dmitry Firtash’s stake in RosUkrEnergo, said Monday in a statement.
