Novatek plans to put up 60% in Arctic LNG 2 as collateral
Russia's largest LNG producer Novatek said it plans to put up its 60% stake in Arctic LNG 2 project as collateral for long-term financing of the project.
Novatek seeks to raise $11 billion in external financing and has said it planned to get the funds by the first half of this year.
The $21 billion project, which received final investment approval in 2019, is expected to be launched in 2023 and to reach its full capacity of almost 20 million tonnes per year in 2026.
The project's equity partners include France's Total , China National Petroleum Corp, China's CNOOC and the Japan Arctic LNG consortium made up of Mitsui & Co and state-owned JOGMEC, formally known as Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp.
Russia's Sberbank SBER.MM said in January it had approved financing of up to 3 billion euros ($3.5 billion) for the Arctic LNG 2.

Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants
Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
