MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. Gazprom Export denied information about working with Rosneft on agency agreement to export gas to Europe, the company told TASS on Thursday.
"The information about Rosneft and Gazprom Export working on agency agreement to export gas to Europe is not true," Gazprom Export said.
Izvestia newspaper earlier said that the company was working with Rosneft. Vice-President of Rosneft Mikhail Leontyev told TASS that the company does not have such information. "We know nothing about it," Leontyev said.
The Russian Energy Ministry did not comment on the situation.
Earlier Leontyev told TASS that Rosneft and Novatek hoped to get an opportunity to export gas to Europe.
Deputy Energy Minister Kirill Molodtsov said the Ministry had received a request from Rosneft for receiving access to gas exports via a single export channel. At the same time, Leontyev told TASS Rosneft hoped to be backed by the Energy Minister regarding the application, to be allowed to sell gas to consumers.
According to Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, there were yet no plans to grant access to pipeline gas exports to independent producers.
