Gazprom to Raise EU Gas Export Via Belarus Amid Ukraine Dispute

OAO Gazprom, Russia’s gas export monopoly, plans to raise Europe-bound gas exports across Belarus by about 13 percent this year after gaining control of the country’s pipeline and Ukraine’s threats to cut purchases.

Gazprom will increase shipments by 4 billion cubic meters this year, Chief Executive Officer Alexey Miller told the Belarus energy minister, according to an e-mailed statement from the Moscow-based company today. Transit shipments amounted to 31.3 billion cubic meters last year.
