Russia?s natural gas monopoly Gazprom intends to buy an interest in liquefied natural gas pipelines and terminals in the United States, Gazprom Deputy Chairman Alexander Medvedev on Wednesday.
He said that in exchange the Russian company would allow Western energy companies to have a role in developing the Shtokman Field in the Barents Sea.
?Our principle is simple. We want to be involved in all parts of the value chain,? Medvedev said in the interview published in Wednesday?s editions of the Houston Chronicle newspaper.
?For access to our strategic reserve base, we want equal access to the downstream and midstream assets.?
