Ashgabat Names Price

ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan -- Turkmenistan wants Russian gas monopoly Gazprom to pay $42 per thousand cubic meters of Turkmen gas under a new supply deal, President Saparmurat Niyazov said Wednesday.

The sides agreed last month that Turkmenistan would deliver 50 billion cubic meters a year via Russia for the next 30 years, although the contentious issue of pricing has yet to be resolved.

Turkmenistan had earlier demanded $45 per thousand cubic meters.
