Gazprom has decided to purchase its European associates Wintershall, EDF and Eni out of the fragmented South Stream gas pipeline project, as stated by the companies on Monday.

Russia left the South Stream project at the beginning of December. It instead suggested an undersea pipeline to Turkey. Before the agreements made known on Monday, Eni owned 20 percent of South Stream Transport, a holding firm based in the Netherlands, with BASF division Wintershall and France's EDF each possessing 15 percent. BASF declared the acquisition price compensates the company for the cash it has spent in the project. BASF and Gazprom also 10 days ago dumped a gas asset swap agreement intended for this year since firms across Europe keep on suffering from increasing tensions between Moscow and the West.
