Engie VP says talks with Sonatrach focus on the long term

PARIS, Aug 29 (Reuters) - French gas giant Engie (ENGIE.PA) is in talks with Algeria's Sonatrach about the potential for boosting gas exports to France over the mid- to long term rather than for this winter, an Engie executive said on Monday.

During a round table organised by France's leading business lobby group Medef, Engie Executive Vice President Claire Waysand also said Engie had "sufficient gas volumes" for the approaching winter.
