PARIS, April 15. / TASS /. French banks may participate in lending for the Yamal LNG project, a relevant agreement may be signed in 2016, Russia's Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev told reporters.
"As for French banks - we have made very serious progress there, we are very optimistic about it. I do hope [that the agreement on lending will be signed this year - TASS]," the minister said.
Earlier this year, Russia’s largest independent gas producer Novatek confirmed the volume of capital expenditures for Yamal LNG project in the amount of $27 bln.
Head of Novatek Leonid Mikhelson said that the company plans to sign a number of loan agreements on the projects with banks in Russia, China and Europe.
