Gazprom (OGZPY.PK) may buy stakes in Greece's DEPA gas monopoly and its transport branch DEFSA, according to a published report. The sale would move Greece's privatization efforts along and allow Gazprom a more direct route to provide gas to Europe. The companies may be worth $1.5-2B, but the sale price could be lower as Greece is a forced seller.
