MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. Yamal LNG received the first €1 bln tranche within the framework of the loan agreement signed with Sberbank and Gazprombank this April, the company said on Friday.
Funds from Russian banks are part of project financing in the amount equivalent to $18.4 bln, which also comprises resources from the Russian National Wealth Fund and China banks, Yamal LNG said.
Implementation of the project is on track, Chief Executive of Yamal LNG Evgeny Kot said. "Readiness of the first stage of the LNG plant is over 70%. The first LNG tank was hydrotested successfully and the largest modules for the first stage were sent from shipyards," he added.
