Gazprom to fully suspend gas supplies to Engie from September

St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF)

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's gas giant Gazprom will fully suspend natural gas supplies to Engie, one its main European utilities, from Sept. 1 until it receives all payments for gas in full, the company said on Tuesday.

Gazprom is further squeezing gas deliveries to Europe in a dispute over contracts, deepening concerns about Europe's winter energy supply.
