Russian energy firm repeats DESFA interest

Sintez Group, a closely-held Russian energy company, reaffirmed its “strong interest” in Greek gas supplier DEPA and natural gas transmission network operator DESFA.

Sintez will now study the assets further before making a “comprehensive binding offer,” the Moscow-based company said in an e-mailed statement.

OJSC Negusneft, a subsidiary of Sintez, was on Wednesday given approval to proceed to the final stage of the sale by the Athens-based Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund. [Bloomberg]
