Gazprom says won't bid for Greek gas firm DEPA

ST PETERSBURG, Russia, June 21 (Reuters) - Russia’s state-run gas export monopoly Gazprom will not bid for Greek natural gas company DEPA in a possible new privatisation tender, said the head of Gazprom’s export arm.

Asked whether Gazprom would bid again if there was a new tender in Greece, Alexander Medvedev said: “No, we won’t go.”

Athens, which has a goal to raise 1.8 billion euros ($2.37 billion) from asset sales by the end of September, failed earlier this month to attract any binding bids for DEPA and said it would launch a new tender in the future.
