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.

Indonesia, home to 260 MM people on 14,000 islands across a vast archipelago, is estimated to become the seventh-largest economy in the world by 2030, with such growth expected to boost the nation’s energy consumption by 80% from present levels.<sup>1</sup>
At October’s HPI Forecast Breakfast for our sister publication, <i>Hydrocarbon Processing</i>, I shared <i>Gas Processing</i>’s forecast on change in the LNG industry.
In one of the toughest markets in the history of gas compression, we are challenged to deliver more with less.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction.
