OREANDA-NEWS. July 19, 2010. Led by Stanislav Tsygankov, Head of the Gazprom International Business Department, a Gazprom delegation took part in the meeting dedicated to deepening the economic ties between the Urals Federal Okrug and the State of Qatar. The meeting was held in Yekaterinburg by Nikolai Vinnichenko, Plenipotentiary Envoy of the Russian Federation President to the Urals Federal Okrug. The meeting was also attended by Vladimir Titorenko, Russian Ambassador to Qatar, Dmitry Kobylkin, Governor of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug (YaNAO) and heads of industrial companies based in the YaNAO.

An integrated project for LNG production was of a particular mutual interest for Russia and Qatar as a possible area of cooperation in the Urals Federal Okrug. Envisaged as part of the Yamal LNG project, it will rely on the Yamal Peninsula resource base.

“Developing the Yamal Peninsula resources and establishing a large LNG production center will transform into a prominent regional project that will possibly involve Qatari companies,” emphasized Stanislav Tsygankov.
