MOSCOW (Reuters) - Investors from Japan and Middle East have shown interest in Gazprom's GAZP.MM Baltic LNG project, Gazprom Deputy Chief Executive Officer Alexander Medvedev said in an interview to the Rossiya-24 TV channel on Friday.
Baltic LNG is due to start producing liquefied natural gas in 2022-2023. Gazprom signed a memorandum of understanding on the project with oil major Royal Dutch Shell RDSa.L last year.
The plant is due to produce between 10 million and 15 million tonnes of LNG annually.
