UpstreamOnline: Gazprom chokes Belarus flows

By Upstream staff

Gazprom will almost halve gas supplies to Belarus from Friday after failing to reach a deal with Minsk over a $456 million gas debt, the Russian gas giant said today.

“We will cut supplies by 45% but fully maintain our transit supplies to Europe via Belarus,” a Gazprom spokesman told Reuters.

“Belarus has so far offered nothing to resolve the debt issue, which we consider a violation of our previous agreements. They have the money to pay back the debt and we do not understand why they don’t want to do it,” he added.
