Centrgaz, a subsidiary of Gazprom, could step in the construction of the South Stream pipeline's Bulgarian stretch, according to a Russian daily.
Vedomosti's website reports that Centrgaz, which has not fallen under EU or US sanctions over the Ukraine crisis, has already won the tender for South Stream in Bulgaria's western neighbor Serbia.
Russian Gazprom does not plan to buy a 1/4 share in Austrian oil and gas company OMV, Gazprom Deputy CEO Alexander Medvedev said Friday.
Medvedev thus refuted earlier claims that the state-owned energy concern was eyeing 24.9% of OMV and was in talks with the International Petroleum Investment Co (IPIC) in Abu Dhabi to purchase them.
Russian concern Gazprom struck Monday an agreement with oil and gas company OMV on the construction of Austria's stretch of the South Stream gas pipeline.
The agreement was signed on Tuesday, the day of a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin to Vienna where he meets Austrian counterpart Heinz Fischer.
