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.
