The Government have remained in close touch with the investors during their negotiations with the Russian authorities on the Sakhalin II project. Commercial negotiations between the investors and the Russian authorities regarding future project arrangements concluded in December 2006, and are now in the implementation phase.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry raised the issue with his Russian counterpart in February 2007 and we continue to monitor the situation.
