Mitsubishi decided not to invest in Novatek’s Arctic LNG 2 project after conducting comprehensive studies, reports Reuters quoting the company’s Chief Financial Officer Kazuyuki Masu as saying at a news conference on August 1.
The Arctic LNG 2 project has made significant development progress since May 2018. Front-end engineering and design (FEED) work has been completed in October confirming the preliminary cost estimates between $20 billion and $21 billion.
The Arctic LNG 2
