LCG, September 24, 2008--Gazprom signed on Monday a memorandum of understanding with the Venezuelan state-owned oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A.

An initial step in the development will be a feasibility study of the Blanquilla Oeste and Tortuga zones. The estimated cost of the LNG terminal is nearly $6 billion. Gazprom will have a 15% ownership in the project. The other participants in the venture are PDVSA (60%), Eni of Italy (10%), Petronas of Malaysia (10%),and Energias de Portugal (5%).

Gazprom's chief executive was recently stated, "We see North America as a region of our strategic interests....We have noticed a growing interest of Canadian companies in co-operation with Gazprom of late. We have received many interesting proposals based on objective competing advantages of Canadian companies in gas supplies to the US market....In general, one can say that we are creating a new configuration of gas supplies to North America."
