The Národna obroda daily paper reports that Alexej Miller, head of the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom, told Slovak President Rudolf Schuster last week that the Russian firm would submit a bid for Slovakia’s SPP gas utility by December 10. Other interested buyers of the 49% SPP stake on offer include a consortium of Ruhrgas, Gaz de France and Snam, the German RWE Gas, the American Investor Partners, and three other unknown companies, according to the paper.
