MOSCOW - Russian state gas company Gazprom expects to post record net profit this year, with gas prices in its core European market forecast to keep rising through the fourth quarter, a company official said on a conference call on Monday.

Gazprom earlier reported record quarterly net profit of 581.8 billion roubles ($7.8 billion) for the third quarter, reflecting high natural gas prices, and said it expected even higher earnings in the last three months of the year.
