A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Gazpromís Management Committee Chairman and Jim Mulva, President and CEO of ConocoPhillips has been conducted today at Gazpromís Headquarters.
The meeting addressed the present-day and prospective status of bilateral cooperation deepening, as stipulated by the Memorandum of Understanding clinched.
The parties debated the progress in the joint work aiming to deliver liquefied natural gas from the Shtokman gas condensate field to the USA.
A leading player on the US energy market, the internationally competitive oil and gas company ConocoPhillips operates in more than 40 countries of the world and mainly focuses on hydrocarbon exploration and production; oil transmission & refining and refined product marketing; natural gas extraction, processing and marketing; petrochemical output and plastics production & marketing.
Being among the top three (along with BP and Sempra) natural gas vendors in the USA, ConocoPhillips sells domestically some 90 bcm of gas per annum, serving gas distribution companies, power plants and industrial customers.
ConocoPhillips has broad technological experience of deep-water drilling and operations in the Arctic environment. The company counts on state-of-the-art gas liquefaction technologies, operates an Alaska-based LNG plant and develops a handful of similar projects on a global scale.
On 22 December 2004, Gazprom and ConocoPhillips signed a Memorandum of Understanding stipulating a preliminary feasibility study to be performed for a liquefied natural gas production and transmission project targeted at the Shtokman gas condensate field output marketing in the USA and other countries on both sides of the Atlantic.
