Third time unlucky: why Gazprom wants no new gas war

Extracts from an article by Dmitry Zhdannikov published on 7 March 2014 by Reuters

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Over the past decade, Gazprom, 51-percent controlled by the state, has twice cut its supplies to Ukraine over pricing disputes with Kiev. That action also cut supplies to the EU, which gets 50 percent of Russian deliveries via Ukraine. Gazprom also helped the Kremlin nationalise Royal Dutch Shell’s Sakhalin gas project as Putin re-established Russia’s grip on the energy sector after predecessor Boris Yeltsin let it slip with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Despite setbacks at Sakhalin, Shell remains Gazprom’s partner in the project, calling it a very successful investment.
