Oil and gas condensate production is planned at 5 million tons in 2009, the ministry said. ?Mitsubishi Corp holds a 10% stake in the project, while Mitsui & Co.  owns 12.5%. Russia's OAO Gazprom  holds 50% plus one share, and Royal Dutch Shell PLC has 27.5% minus one share. ?Under the contracts with Gazprom, Japanese electric and gas utilities plan to purchase more than 60% of the 9.6 million tons of LNG to be produced annually at the facility.
