Russia's largest independent natural gas producer Novatek signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on cooperation with India's largest liquefied natural gas importer Petronet LNG.

The MoU envisages delivering LNG supplies from Novatek's portfolio to the Indian market, including natural gas supplies for power generation, as well as investment by Petronet LNG in Novatek's future LNG projects and the joint marketing of LNG as motor fuel in India, including joint investment in developing a network of filling stations and a fleet of LNG-fueled trucks.

"India's rapid economic growth requires increasing demand for all sources of energy and, primarily, for natural gas as the most environmentally friendly type of fuel. Moreover, the conversion of modal transport to LNG enables India to significantly reduce carbon emissions, thereby contributing to India's commitment toward reducing its impact on climate change," noted Leonid Mikhelson, Novatek's Chairman of the Management Board.

"Our low-cost production from future Arctic LNG projects ensures competitively priced LNG supplies to most regions of the world, and we are confident that our mutually beneficially cooperation with Petronet LNG will promote the supply of affordable clean burning natural gas to the Indian market," Leonid added.
