EU antitrust regulators say awaiting Gazprom commitments

The European Union is expecting commitments from Russian state gas exporter Gazprom to avoid fines in a five-year antitrust case, the EU`s competition chief said on Wednesday, adding that for now all options remained on the table, according to Reuters.

”It is now for Gazprom to formally submit commitments that meet the Commission`s objectives,” Margrethe Vestager said in a statement following talks with Gazprom in Brussels, as reported by Reuters.

If the Commission accepts the settlement, sources said Gazprom would avoid a finding of infringement and a potential fine to 10% of its global turnover.
