The two companies are to cooperate in the production, transportation and marketing of small and medium-scale LNG in Japan, as well as LNG bunkering in the Sea of Japan, according to a Gazprom statement.

The framework agreement was signed by Gazprom head Alexey Miller, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Mitsui, Masami Iijima.
