European Union officials raided the offices of Gazprom PJSC’s German units as part of a probe into the Russian gas giant’s role in pushing prices in the continent to records, according to people familiar with the matter.

Officials visited offices of companies including Gazprom Germania GmbH and Wingas GmbH, which supplies about 20% of the German market, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private. The raid comes as Europe steps up its probe into whether Gazprom’s behavior caused a spike in gas prices and worsened the region’s energy crunch, the people said.
