MOSCOW, March 12 (Reuters) - Japan has asked Russia to
increase energy supplies after a nuclear power station was
damaged by a massive earthquake, Russian agencies quoted Deputy
Prime Minister Igor Sechin as saying on Saturday.
Sechin said Russia can increase liquefied natural gas supply
by 150,000 tonnes, while Russia's Mechel and SUEK next week will
look into possibility of raising coal supply by 3 to 4 million
tonnes, Itar Tass agency reported.
