Putin says Russia may become swing gas producer for Europe, Asia

ST PETERSBURG, Russia, May 23 (Reuters) - Gazprom's natural gas supply deal with China will ultimately enable Russia to become a swing gas producer between Europe and Asia, President Vladimir Putin told business leaders at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum on Friday.

Russia and China signed a 30-year gas supply contract, worth a total of more than $400 billion, earlier this week during Putin's visit to the country. (Reporting by Darya Korsunskaya; Writing by Lidia Kelly)
