According to Reuters, the Russian energy minister has stated that Mitsubishi Corp. is interested in taking part in the Arctic LNG 2 project.
The project is scheduled to commence LNG production next decade. It is owned by Novatek, which owns a 90% stake, and Total, which holds the remaining 10% stake. According to Reuters, Novatek is planning to keep hold of a 60% stake in the project, offering 30% to other investors.
