Gazprom makes Yamal LNG partner list
18 November 2008 - Upstream OnLine - Russia's Gazprom is considering US giants ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips for its liquefied natural gas project in Russia's Arctic Yamal region, its deputy chairman said today. "The list (of possible participants) is currently being made, but we do not exclude majors such as ExxonMobil and Conoco from joining the project," Retuters quoted Alexander Medvedev as telling journalists on the sidelines of a gas conference. He also said Gazprom could work in gas projects in Alaska with Conoco in exchange for the US major gaining access to the Yuzhno Tambeisky deposits in Arctic Yamal. "But nothing concrete has been decided yet."
