MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) — Gazprom will resume negotiations on the accession to the Sakhalin-2 project with Shell, Mitsiu and Mitsubishi, Deputy CEO Alexander Medvedev said on Tuesday.

“We will resume the negotiations as soon as we clarify two things, namely larger expenditures, which will naturally have an effect on the economic aspect of the project, and environmental safety,” he said.

Gazprom started the negotiations back in 2004, yet the decision to double the expenditures became a stumbling stone.

British-Dutch Shell (55%) and Japan’s Mitsui (25%) and Mitsubishi (20%) are partners in the project. and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
