"The topic of constructing a mini LNG plant on the south of Sakhalin Island has been raised in May of this year during a visit to Japan by the representative Russian delegation headed by Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Trutnev.

According to the press service, Masanori Suzuki intends to visit Aniva gas fields, explore possible sites for the plant, and select the option that requires minimal construction costs and would be the most convenient in terms of the logistics of products supplies.
