Greece pushes back bid deadline for offshore gas storage facility

Greece has pushed back by a month a deadline for investors to bid for a contract to run an underground gas storage facility in the northern Aegean Sea.
Privatisation agency HRADF (or TAIPED), which manages the concession, said late on Tuesday that it had extended the deadline for initial bids to Sept. 30 from Aug. 31, without giving a reason for the delay.
