Russia’s Sintez Group Reaffirms Interest in Greek Energy Assets

Sintez Group, a closely-held Russian energy company, reaffirmed its “strong interest” in Greek gas supplier Depa and gas grid operator Desfa.

Sintez will now study the assets further before making a “comprehensive binding offer,” the Moscow-based company said today in an e-mailed statement.

OJSC Negusneft, a subsidiary of Sintez, was yesterday given approval to proceed to the final stage of the sale by the Athens-based Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund.
