AMSTERDAM, May 30 (Reuters) - GasTerra of the Netherlands said on Monday that Russia's Gazprom would stop delivering gas to it on May 31 after the Dutch company refused to agree to Moscow's demands to be paid in roubles.

GasTerra, which buys and trades gas on behalf of the Dutch government, said it had contracted elsewhere for the 2 billion cubic meters of gas it had expected to receive from Gazprom through October. (Reporting by Toby Sterling Editing by Gareth Jones)
