Gazprom may supply Shtokman deposit gas to Japan

Aleksey Miller, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Gazprom, promised to consider the possibility of supplying liquefied gas from Shtokman field gas to Japan. According to Mr. Millner, Japan is one of the largest consumers of liquefied gas in the world. In the future liquefied gas consumption in the country may increase as atomic generation will fall.

Plans on developing Shtokman deposit has been being postponed. In the end of 2011Gazprom shareholders, among them French Total and Norwegian Statoil, put off taking the key decision.

The gas supply for the gas pipelines are expected to start in 2016, and liquefied gas supplies in 2017.

Shtokman deposit is considered to be the richest in the world. Its reserves make up 3.8 trillion cubic meters.
