Yamal LNG to get NWF support
Russia’s sanction-hit companies such as Novatek might get government support through the National Wealth Fund.
A minister said that Novatek might receive funds for its Yamal LNG project after the country’s second gas producer, submitted a request for support to the Economy Ministry, in the amount of 100 billion to 150 billion roubles ($2.6-3.9 billion), according to Reuters. The government plan is to buy bonds issued by sanction-hit companies.
