Novatek in talks to sell stake in Yamal LNG to consortium

BY JAMES MARSON

MOSCOW -- OAO Novatek, is in "advanced talks" on selling a stake in its Arctic LNG project to a consortium of foreign companies, Novatek's CFO Mark Gyetvey said.

Speaking on a conference call, Mr. Gyetvey did not name the companies.

Novatek in June signed a framework agreement to sell a 20% stake in the Yamal LNG project to China National Petroleum Corp.

Total holds a 20% stake in the project, which is set to produce its first gas in 2017.
