Russia’s Gazprom to Search for Oil, Gas off Dominican Republic

Gazprom International SA, a subsidiary of Moscow-based oil and gas company Gazprom, will begin offshore oil and gas exploration in the Dominican Republic, Gazprom communications representative Denis Ignatiev said in a telephone interview from Moscow.

The announcement followed a visit from Gazprom International to the Caribbean nation last week. Gazprom will consider helping the Dominican Republic to reduce a current energy deficit, the company said in a press statement.
