MOSCOW, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Russian state gas company Gazprom (GAZP.MM) forecasts that gas prices in Europe next year will be no lower than in 2021, a company official told a conference call on Monday.

Gazprom sees the average gas price in Europe at $550 per 1,000 cubic metres in the fourth quarter, the official said, adding that the company would continue refilling storage in the region until year-end because it now stands at 75.25 billion cubic metres (bcm), below a six-year average of 90.73 bcm.
