Russia’s largest independent gas producer Novatek said Tuesday it has completed the sale of a 9.9% equity stake in the $27 billion Yamal LNG project to China’s Silk Road Fund. The deal is worth 1.08 billion euros ($1.2 billion).

Following the deal completion, Novatek owns a 50.1% stake in the giant LNG project, while Total and CNPC have 20% each.

Earlier in December 2015, as part of the transaction, Novatek received a 15-year loan worth about 730 million euros from SRF for the financing of the Artic LNG project.

Yamal LNG project includes the construction of a liquefaction plant with annual capacity of 16.5 million tons per annum based on the feedstock resources of the South-Tambeyskoye field.

The production from the LNG project is scheduled to start in 2017.
