The Polish antimonopoly regulator UOKiK fined Gazprom $57 million for its unwillingness to cooperate with it on the investigation of the Nord Stream project, Interfax reports.
UOKiK has filed charges against six companies: Gazprom, Engie, Uniper, OMV, Shell and Wintershall Dea.
The imposition of a fine on Gazprom is related to the ongoing investigation into the creation of a consortium to finance the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline without the "necessary" (according to the Polish regulator) consent of UOKiK.
“In these proceedings, the Chairman of UOKiK also applied to Gazprom for documents related to the case, but the company refused to provide information important to the ongoing investigation,” the statement said.
Earlier it was reported that Poland had filed an application for participation in the appeal process on Nord Stream 2.
