Jan. 20 (Bloomberg) -- OAO Gazprom Chief Executive Officer Alexei Miller is “rumored” to be leaving his position, Vedomosti reported, citing several unidentified people close to the state gas company. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said it’s “speculation” that Miller will be replaced, according to the Moscow-based newspaper.
One of the potential replacements for the Gazprom chief is Leonid Mikhelson, chief executive officer of gas producer OAO Novatek, Vedomosti said. The speculation wasn’t confirmed, the newspaper said.
