MOSCOW -- Russian natural
gas monopoly OAO Gazprom aims to increase exports in 2013,
deputy chief executive Alexander Medvedev said Friday, as
reported by Prime news agency.
He said the company would export more gas next year than
this year, when asked by a reporter how large the company's
exports would be in 2013.
Mr. Medevedev wouldn't specify the size of Gazprom's gas
exports in 2012, saying he would give the figure later, the
news agency reported.
A minimum of a quarter of the gas will be supplied via new
contracts, he said at the launch of the South Stream pipeline
project in southern Russia that will
bring Russian gas to Europe.
