Novatek plans to launch the first GBS in 2023, followed by the second in 2024, and the third in 2025.
The Russian firm is the LNG project’s operator with a 60 percent stake, France’s TotalEnergies owns 10 percent while CNPC and CNOOC of China also have 10 percent, each.
Furthermore, Japan Arctic LNG, a consortium of Mitsui & Co and Jogmec owns a 10 percent stake in the project as well.
