Yakut gas to be delivered to Asia-Pacific countries
Asia-Pacific countries expressed interest in liquefied natural gas supplies from Yakutia after the first export deliveries
Investors in the Asia-Pacific region are interested in deliveries of liquefied natural gas from Yakutia, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports with the reference to the Far East Agency on Investment Promotion and Export Support (FEA IPES).
“After the first export deliveries, investors from the Asia-Pacific countries began to express even greater interest to the project. The plan is to increase production volumes and now our main task is to find a strategic partner in the project. We already have had negotiations with potential partners from Singapore, China, the Republic of Korea,” the agency says.
To increase the investment attractiveness of the region, the LNG LLC plans to use the possibilities of the Priority Development Area preferential taxation in gas exports. The Export Support agency helps LNG LLC to prepare the necessary documents as part of a memorandum of cooperation between the organizations, signed in 2018.
Earlier, the Yakutia 24 TV channel reported that the volume of the first delivery of liquefied natural gas by LNG LLC from Yakutia to Mongolia amounted to 36 tons. Demand for LNG in Mongolia could reach eight thousand tons in 2020.
