Gazprom, ENI to Conclude Elephant Stake Buy after Libyan Unrest

MOSCOW (Dow Jones Newswires), Apr. 20, 2011

Gazprom plans to acquire a 33% stake in ENI's Elephant field in Libya has been delayed, and will be finalized when the situation stabilizes in the North African country, Gazprom said Wednesday in a press release.

The announcement came following a meeting in Moscow between Gazprom Chief Executive Alexei Miller and ENI CEO Paolo Scaroni.

The two also discussed France's Electricite de France and Germany's Wintershall joining the South Stream project.
