Gazprom to Sign Gas Accord With Belarus Nov. 25, Interfax Says

OAO Gazprom plans to sign a gas agreement with Belarus on Nov. 25, Interfax said, citing Valery Golubev, deputy chief executive officer of the Russian gas producer and exporter.

The agreement will cover supplies to Belarus starting next year and Gazprom’s purchase of 50 percent of Beltransgaz, the country’s gas pipeline network, the news service reported from Gatchina in Russia’s Leningrad region. Gazprom already owns half of Beltransgaz.

Gazprom’s press service declined to comment when called by Bloomberg News.
