OMV CEO Gerhard Roiss (L) and Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller sign the final deal to build a branch of South Stream gas pipeline ending in Austria, in Vienna June 24, 2014. Russia's Gazprom finalised a deal on Tuesday to build a branch of its controversial South Stream gas pipeline to Austria, in the face of EU opposition to the project.
