Japan asks Russia to raise energy supply after quake

MOSCOW, March 12 (Reuters) - Japan has asked Russia to increase energy supplies after a nuclear power station was damaged by a massive earthquake, Russian agencies quoted Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin as saying on Saturday.

Sechin said Russia can increase liquefied natural gas supply by 150,000 tonnes, while Russia’s Mechel (MTL.N) and SUEK next week will look into possibility of raising coal supply by 3 to 4 million tonnes, Itar Tass agency reported. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin; Editing by Louise Ireland)
