Its proposed $10-billion LNG project is to produce about 10 million tonnes of super-cooled liquefied natural gas per year to ship mainly to European customers.

It says the Shell assets produce about 120 million cubic feet per day of natural gas, 5,600 barrels per day of natural gas liquids and 3,200 bpd of condensate and light oil.

The deal also includes three sour gas processing plants, a 14 percent interest in a sulphur plant and about 1,700 kilometres of pipelines.
