The deal worth $2.7bn will be financed by Ruhrgas and Gaz de France. Gazprom will pay a third of this sum in installments.

Gazprom is making a part of natural gas supplies to Europe via the SPP pipeline system. This company is transporting about 70 percent of all gas supplied from Russia to Europe.
