Russia’s Gazprom ‘not negotiating’ LNG supplies to Pakistan

Agency News

St. Petersburg, May 28 : Russia's Gazprom energy giant has not won a bidding auction for delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Pakistan and is not negotiating LNG contracts with the country at the moment, Head of Department at Gazprom Pavel Oderov said Tuesday.

"Pakistan indeed held a bidding auction on large-scale LNG delivery contract, we took part in it and did not win. I do not know what is happening with the bidding at the moment. We are not working with Pakistan now in the format which we used earlier," Oderov told reporters.

Gazprom is currently not holding any detailed talks on LNG delivery to Bahrain either, Oderov said."We have, in fact, set up a working group to discuss potential delivery of LNG to Bahrain. We are not focusing on that in detail at the moment. We are not holding talks on details with our Bahraini partners," Oderov said. SPUTNIK
