Mariana Gheorghe, CEO of Petrom, gestures during an interview with Reuters in Bucharest September 23, 2013. Romania's top oil and gas company Petrom plans to earmark about 1 billion euros ($1.35 billion) for investment next year and could move into shale gas exploration if feasible, Gheorghe said on Monday. Petrom, which is majority-owned by Austria's OMV, had said it might expand its operations to shale after 2021. REUTERS/Bogdan Cristel (ROMANIA - Tags: BUSINESS ENERGY HEADSHOT) less
