Russian oil and gas pair said to eye Eni's stake in SeverEnergia

Gazprom (OGZPY.PK) and Novatek (NOVKY.OB) reportedly want to buy Eni's (E) 29.4% stake in Russian gas company SeverEnergia, which would help the Russian duo counter the influence of Rosneft (RNFTF.PK), which last month agreed to purchase Enel's indirect stake in SeverEnergia for $1.8B.

The contest in Russia for gas resources and markets comes to a head as the government reviews a proposal for a partial lifting of Gazprom's export monopoly for tanker-shipped liquefied natural gas from the start of next year.

SeverEnergia owns licenses for nine gas fields in Russia, with proven and probable reserves of 7.3B boe.
