Leonid Mikhelson, head of Novatek, suggested that it should be possible to obtain the right to export LNG for production facilities without being linked to licenses for specific fields. Company has the right to export its projects except for Cryogas-Vysotsk in the Baltic Sea, which is not tied to any field and Novatek has to export gas through a commission contract with Gazprom Export, which has problems with passing payment for supplies, which then becomes Novatek's problem.
