Russia's Gazprom: Europe gas supplies to start

January 20, 2009 06:52

The head of Russia's natural gas monopoly Gazprom has ordered the resumption of deliveries bound for Europe via Ukraine at 10 a.m. Moscow time (0700 GMT) Tuesday. Gazprom chief Alexei Miller issued the directive before dawn, hours after Russia and Ukraine signed deals paving the way for the restoration of supplies to Europe following a nearly two-week cutoff. Miller ordered Gazprom to coordinate with Ukraine's Naftogaz to ensure the neighboring countries' pipeline systems are synchronized to get the gas flowing at the designated time.
