PARIS, Nov. 29 -- Russia's OAO Gazprom and France's Gaz de France have signed a deal under which Gazprom will deliver pipeline gas to GDF in exchange for a shipment of LNG, which Gazprom will sell in the US.

Gazprom will receive the LNG from Med LNG & Gas, a joint venture of GDF and Algeria's Sonatrach.

Shell Western LNG agreed to buy the LNG from Gazprom upon delivery in December at the Cove Point, Md., regasification terminal, which is partly owned by Shell.
