This Russian energy company has long enjoyed a tight-knit relationship with its countryís government. The company's former chairman, Dimitri A. Medvedev, was elected president of Russia in 2008 and now serves as the country's prime minister. Gazprom recently reached a deal with Europe's EDF, an integrated energy company based in France, to jointly invest in gas-fired power plants in Europe. The new agreement only strengthens the company's position as the leading natural gas provider in the country, making Gazprom as the exclusive supplier of natural gas for the project.†--S.J.
