    ST. PETERSBURG, May 18 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Energy Minister Viktor Khristenko said Thursday a merger was possible between state-owned oil-pipeline companies Transneft (RTS: TRNFP) and Transnefteproduct.

    "In this case any corporate restructuring is of course possible. But this does not mean the physical merger of transport systems," Khristenko told journalists in St. Petersburg.
