PRAGUE, September 19 (Itar-Tass) - Czech oil and gas company Moravske Naftove Doly (MND) has won a dispute with the European Commission over leasing the gas storage facility it is building in the republic's southern Moravia to Russia's Gazprom, local daily Hospodarske noviny (HN) says.
MND has agreed with Gazprom on a long-term lease of the facility without a bidding contest. Under the terms of the contract, state-owned Gazprom will acquire 90 percent of capacity of the storage facility for 290 million euro for 15 years.
Czech officials signed the contract with Gazprom in March. The facility, located in the south Moravian town of Damborice, will launch operations in 2016. The tank's 448 million cubic metre capacity will make it one of the biggest such facilities in the Czech Republic. The project is estimated to be worth over $50 million.
