MOSCOW Feb 17 (Reuters) - Russia's Gazprom (GAZP.MM) will sign an agreement with Italy's ENI (ENI.MI) on Feb 28 on gas purchases from a jointly-held Russian energy unit, Severenergia, Gazprom said in a statement on Thursday.

Gazprom sold its 51 percent stake in Severenergia to its oil arm, Gazprom Neft (SIBN.MM) and independent producer Novatek NOTK.MM. Gazprom had bought its stake from ENI and Enel (ENEI.MI) last year. (Writing by Melissa Akin; editing by Jessica Bachman )
