Gazprom is not going to invite Chinese companies to develop its gas fields, Deputy CEO Vitaly Markelov said on Tuesday.

When asked if Gazprom was considering inviting Chinese companies to develop its fields, Markelov told a news conference: “We are not looking at such cooperation.”

President Vladimir Putin plans to visit China on May 20 as Gazprom hopes to sign a gas contract to help it diversify its exports away from Europe.
