MOSCOW -- OAO Gazprom and Petrovietnam are considering signing a contract for the supply and purchase of liquefied natural gas, Gazprom said in a statement Wednesday, as the Russian state-controlled company continues its efforts to increase sales to Asia.

"The possibility of concluding a long-term LNG sale-and-purchase agreement is being considered," Gazprom said in a statement, after a meeting between its CEO, Alexei Miller, and the chairman of Petrovietnam's board, Phung Dinh Thuc.
