The London Stock Exchange said on Tuesday it has cancelled securities of Russian energy company Gazprom from admission to trading at the company's request.

Gazprom said earlier this month that it had notified the Financial Conduct Authority of its intention to cancel standard listing of depositary receipts representing shares in the company in the London Stock Exchange Official List.

The delisting was expected to take effect on May 31.
