Gazprom and Brussels agree to settle long-running dispute (Financial Times)

Draft deal a rare example of Moscow and the west mending economic ties

Gazprom and the EU will try to settle their antitrust battle and end a five-year probe with legally binding pledges to change behaviour rather than a big fine or imposed terms.

The state-controlled Russian energy group will yield to EU demands on how it sells gas in Europe in order to escape a penalty for past anti-competitive behaviour. The bargain is likely to anger eastern and Baltic states that have campaigned for a tougher approach.

The deal potentially marks a turning point in one of the European Commission’s most important antitrust battles. Former communist EU member states see it as a test of whether the bloc’s powerful antitrust arm will protect their interests against a Russian monopoly with a stranglehold over their energy supplies. Poland and Lithuania in particular see Russia as using gas as a political tool and are critical of Brussels for not tackling unfair prices.

A final draft of the proposed settlement will be submitted by Gazprom to Brussels imminently, which will formalise gradual shifts in the energy company’s pricing practices in recent years. It will pave the way for a second, contentious stage — the so-called “market test”, where critics will have the opportunity to raise objections before the commission takes a final decision.

Poland’s government-owned oil and gas company PGNiG reacted by saying it was ready to sue the European Commission for breaking EU rules by not imposing fines on Gazprom and by allowing the Russian company to have increased use of European pipelines...............
