Russia's Gazprom and Germany's RWE Agree New Gas Supply Terms


IRKUTSK/MOSCOW, Russia, June 7 (Reuters) - Gazprom Export, a unit of Russia's top natural gas producer Gazprom, and German power utility RWE have reached agreement on the terms for a long-term gas supply contract, both sides said on Tuesday.

"Gazprom and RWE have reached agreements on the main commercial terms," a Gazprom Export official told Reuters.

RWE, already a big buyer of Russian gas, has been trying to renegotiate the terms of a long-term contract with Gazprom.

A RWE spokeswoman said that following the agreement potential disputes arising from a price review which could have been initiated in early summer had been avoided.

Neither Gazprom Export nor RWE would comment on the terms agreed.
