Gazprom Export plans gas auction in September

Gazprom Export said it will conduct a gas auction thus addressing the challenges of the evolving energy market with the intention to test a new mechanism of gas sales in Europe.

The auction will be carried out by the company in September this year with gas supplies during the delivery period in winter 2015/2016 to several delivery points in North-West Europe, at the choice of a customer, with total volume of 3.2 bcm.
