RWE Considering Gazprom

Gazprom expects Germany's exit from nuclear power to boost demand for its fuel supplies, deputy chief executive Alexander Medvedev said Friday in remarks broadcast on state television.

Germany may need additional supplies of 15 billion to 20 billion cubic meters of gas a year to fuel power stations, RIA-Novosti reported Friday, citing Medvedev. It will have to spend about 10 billion euros ($14 billion) to build gas-fired generating capacity, RIA-Novosti said, citing the executive.

RWE chief executive Juergen Grossmann is considering Gazprom as an investor for the German utility, Der Spiegel reported, citing unidentified people familiar with the issue. Grossmann met Gazprom chief executive Alexei Miller in Paris on Saturday to discuss possible cooperation, the magazine said on its web site.


… 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.
