Gazprom has taken steps to streamline the management system for long-term financial investments, as well as the corporate management and control system of Gazprom Group with due regard to the growing share of long-term investments in the Gazprom asset structure, deriving, inter alia, from the Company’s entry into the oil, power generation and LNG businesses.
