JBIC says considering financing Novatek's Arctic LNG-2 project
VLADIVOSTOK, Russia (Reuters) — The Japan Bank for International Cooperation is studying the possibility of providing financing for Arctic LNG 2, the second LNG plant of Russia’s Novatek, JBIC Chief Executive Tadashi Maeda told reporters.
JBIC has already provided $238 MM for Yamal LNG, Novatek’s first LNG plant and which is to be launched this year.
Asked about the possibility of providing financing for Novatek’s second plant, Maeda said participation of Japanese companies—direct or in the form of LNG buyers from the project—would be a condition.
“It’s conditional of Japanese companies’ participation in the project,” Maeda said. He added that the bank would not provide financing if there were no Japanese companies involved.

Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
