Sign of increased Gazprom contract flexibility

Geoplin's previous long-term contract with Gazprom expired at the end of 2017, with Russian supplies to Slovenia running since 1992.

The latest five-year deal comes against the background of a trend away from previous long-term contracts in Europe between Gazprom and its customers that saw supply deals last for decades.

"The new contract for gas supplies will reinforce the relations between our companies," Gazprom deputy CEO Alexander Medvedev said in a statement late Friday.

The contract is valid from January 1, 2018 to January 1, 2023.

In September, Gazprom agreed to resume long-term gas supplies to Croatia under a new 10-year contract valid until the end of 2027.

The contract is for 1 Bcm/year and tops up Croatia's own domestic gas production.
