Fulfillment of the project «Yamal LNG» is conducted in conformity with the schedule. This information was given by the minister for energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak in his answer to the question of RIA «Novosti», if he sees risks because of difficulties with financing.
As Alexander Novak says, now everything is taking place in conformity with the plans of building. But, of course, it needs to conduct monitoring of the current situation. The first stage of the plant, as it is expected, will be started up in 2017. In total it is planned to build three stages. As we should note, the project «Yamal LNG» foresees building of the sea port in Sabetta and the plant on production of liquefied natural gas with capacity 16 million and 500 thousand tons per year on resource base of the South-Tambey field. The total cost of the project makes almost 27 milliard dollars.
As it is informed earlier by the French company «Total» – one of the partners on the project –terms of fulfillment of the project can be transferred to later time. NOVATEK was included to the sanction list of the USA, thus, it cannot attract long-term financing from American investors.
