Gazprom-Europol Deal 'Just a Feasibility Study'

The agreement signed by Russia's Gazprom and Poland's Europol Gaz regarding the second segment of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline is just a feasibility study and does not mean the investment will be carried out, Europol Gaz said.

"This is just a document regarding a feasibility study and does not mean that the gas link will be built," said Grazyna Piotrowska-Oliwa, deputy chairman of Europol Gaz supervisory board and chief executive at Poland's gas monopoly PGNiG.

The Russian gas export monopoly said on Friday that it had signed an initial agreement with Europol Gaz to build a second segment of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline, which would go via Poland to Slovakia and Hunga.
