Gazprom Seeks Waiver

MOSCOW -- Gazprom is insisting Turkey give tax breaks to companies involved in laying the Blue Stream gas pipeline across the Black Sea, Interfax quoted chief executive officer Rem Vyakhirev as saying Tuesday.

A Gazprom delegation will hold consultations in Ankara, Turkey, on Saturday, on the wording of a protocol supplementing the Russian-Turkish agreement on construction of the Blue Stream gas pipeline, the agency said.
