Novatek is struggling to complete the Arctic LNG 2 project in the face of international sanctions, and although there is no formal embargo on Russian LNG, traders are reluctant to touch Russian-origin cargoes. Cut off from international finance and technology, any further new projects are unachievable for the foreseeable future, and Russia faces a much scaled-down future as an LNG player – just as the need for additional LNG production becomes ever more pressing.
