Russia's Novatek signs LNG agreement with Japan's JOGMEC
VLADIVOSTOK, Russia, (Reuters) - Russia’s Novatek said it had signed a framework agreement with Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp (JOGMEC) to cooperate on Novatek’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects in the north of Russia.
“The parties agreed to explore opportunities to cooperate on Novatek’s projects in the Yamal and Gydan peninsulas, including the Arctic LNG 2 project, on developing a regular transport link via the Northern Sea Route for LNG deliveries to the Japanese and Asia-Pacific markets,” the statement said.
Novatek controls the Yamal LNG project, in which France’s Total along with China’s CNPC and the Silk Road Fund are minority shareholders.
Russian and Japanese companies signed a portfolio of agreements on the sidelines of a forum in Russia’s far eastern city of Vladivostok.

Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
