Several documents are due to be signed, in particular by [Russia's energy company] Rosneft, including with the Eni company, [Russia’s leading independent natural gas producer] Novatek and the Saipem company with respect to cooperation in the development of LNG [liquefied natural gas] projects in Russia," Ushakov told journalists.
