    The project has been in the works for seven years but was put on hold when oil and LNG prices plunged during the recent energy market downturn. However, with those markets improving and demand for LNG growing at a brisk pace, Shell and its partners are moving forward with the project. PetroChina (NYSE: PTR),China’s largest natural gas producer, recently approved investing $3.46 billion for its 15% share of the project, following a similar approval from Korea Gas Corp. for its 5% stake. Meanwhile, Shell (40%), Malaysia’s Petronas (25%), and Japan’s Mitsubishi Corp.(15%) appear set to announce their approvals this week, according to Bloomberg. That would enable them to start construction on the project next year, putting them on track to complete the first phase by 2023.
