Gazprom ‘wants third train for Sakhalin-2’

Gazprom25 December 2013, News Wires -The giant Sakhalin-2 liquefied natural gas project off eastern Russian looks set to go from two to three trains after local gas monopoly Gazprom approved an expansion, according to a report.

Gazprom boss Alexei Miller met with Peter Voser, chief executive of the other major partner in the project, Shell, in Moscow and discussed the deal, Reuters reported.

The pair agreed to recommend that the board of Sakhalin Energy discuss the design of the third train, something Shell has been for and Gazprom against for some time.

Japanese pair Mitsui and Mitsubishi are also partners in the project that as things stand is Russia’s only LNG export project.
