VEB of Russia provides $3 bln guaranty for Yamal LNG loans

Russian Vnesheconombank, the bank for development and foreign economic affairs, provided a guarantee for $3 billion of loans secured by the Novatek-led Yamal LNG project.

These include full NWF funding in two tranches and a recently withdrawn first tranche through the Sberbank, Gazprombank loan deal.
