Spanish companies scrutinize the opportunity to participate in the project of NOVATEK “Arctic LNG” and joint trading with Russia.
This information was given by the minister for energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak in the interview to RIA “Novosti”. In Moscow on the 29th of May the head of the Ministry for energy of the Russian Federation conducted the sitting of the interdepartmental commission of Russia and Spain. Also the program included the business forum of the two countries.
The company NOVATEK scrutinizes energy companies of Spain as partners. Now there are no concrete agreements, but the following suggestions are being scrutinized: participation in the project “Arctic LNG”, joint trading together with Spanish companies, bunkering of fuel of liquefied natural gas in the Strait of Gibraltar, as Alexander Novak says.
The minister notes that interaction with Spain is much diversified: cooperation in energy, agro-industrial complex, transport branch (purchase of railroad cars, participation of Spanish companies in construction and automation of motor roads, joint enterprises on production of auto-components).
As we should remind, “Arctic LNG 2” is the second project of NOVATEK on production of liquefied natural gas in addition to “Yamal LNG”. It is planned to start up the project in 2022-2025. Extractive fields on the Gydan peninsula will become resource base for the project.
