NOVATEK conducts negotiations with the English-Dutch concern «Shell» on creation of the second plant on liquefying of gas in Yamal. It was declared by a shareholder of the Russian gas company Gennady Timchenko.
In the opinion of experts, advantages of Shell as a partner are: own technology of large tonnage liquefying, big technological and marketing experience on the LNG market and own portfolio of gas, thus, the company can be a purchaser. However, some specialists see risks in such cooperation; moreover, NOVATEK is included to the list of sanctions of the USA and the EU. As the head of the LNG branch in ICIS Heren Roman Kazmin comments, in conditions of sanctions it needs first to foresee alternative sources of finances and technologies in the project of the new plant. At that, as the newspaper «Kommersant» informs, NOVATEK already conducts active preparatory work on new projects. Affiliated enterprises of the company «Arctic LNG 1» and «Arctic LNG 2» and «Arctic LNG 3», which own licenses for Geofizicheskoye and Utreneye fields and Ob licensed area, in October were included into the governmental list of LNG exporters.
As we should remind, in the beginning of 2018 NOVATEK will start building of the second plant on liquefying of natural gas in Yamal. It is planned to build it in three stages: the first stage should be started up in 2022, the second – in 2024 and the third – in 2025.
Now NOVATEK builds the first stage on production of liquefied natural gas in Yamal on the base of the South-Tambey field. The French company Total and the Chinese company CNPC are other shareholders of the project.
