The MOU was signed June 22 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

JFG and Gazprom conducted a joint feasibility study for the natural gas utilization project in the Vladivostok area during year 2011 and 2012. Following the result of the above-mentioned study, this MOU was signed between JFG and Gazprom regarding the discussions on foundation of a joint project company as well as joint marketing activity in Japan, which would contribute to the realization of Vladivostok LNG project.
