Gazprom discusses gas pipeline across Greece

OAO Gazprom, Russia?s natural-gas export monopoly, discussed building of the South Stream gas pipeline across Greece, as well as fuel supplies to the Balkan country.

Chief Executive Officer Alexey Miller met with Antonis Samaras, the head of Greece?s New Democracy party, in Moscow, Gazprom said on Thursday in an e-mailed statement.

Gazprom is boosting gas deliveries to Greece to more than contracted levels after cold weather hindered supplies across Turkey, the Moscow-based company said separately on Thursday.
