MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s Novatek said on Friday that the company expects to close the sale of a 20 percent stake in its new liquefied natural gas project, Arctic LNG 2, to two Chinese companies within 2-3 months.
Novatek announced the sale on Thursday but did not provide financial details.
China National Oil and Gas Exploration and Development Company (CNODC) and CNOOC will each buy a 10 percent stake in the project, set to become Novatek’s third LNG plant in Russia.
