Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) -- OAO Gazprom, Russia’s gas export monopoly, isn’t currently able to provide additional gas sought by countries in western Europe, RIA Novosti reported, citing Deputy Chief Executive Officer Andrey Kruglov.

“Gazprom isn’t currently able to meet the additional gas volumes requested by our partners in western Europe,” Kruglov was cited as saying by the state-run news service.

The state-run company reduced deliveries to Europe by 10 percent for several days because of cold weather and is now fully delivering contracted volumes, RIA reported, citing Kruglov.
