Chairman of the Board of Directors of CNPC Zhou Jiping stated: “We are glad to conclude this agreement with NOVATEK on our entrance into the Yamal LNG project based on vast conventional gas reserves, guaranteeing long-term sustainable supplies of LNG to China. We acknowledge that Russia is giving a lot of attention to its expansion into the international LNG markets and we welcome the increase in Russian LNG supplies to China”.
