Hanoi(VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung on December 1 greeted Vice President of ExxonMobil Group Paul Greenwood, who is in Vietnam to evaluate the development of the Ca Voi Xanh (Blue Whale) natural gas field in the central region.

At the meeting in Hanoi, Dung spoke highly of efforts made by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam) and ExxonMobil Group during the implementation of the project.

He stressed that the early production of gas from the field is significant as it will help meet the increasing demand for production and commercial consumption.

Therefore, the Deputy PM suggested the group coordinate with the Ministry of Industry and Trade and PetroVietnam to promptly conclude negotiations on the remaining contents, ensuring the pace of the project.

Paul Greenwood said his group is accelerating the negotiations with the Vietnamese side to reach the final consensus.

He noted his wish that the Vietnamese Government will create favourable conditions for the early realisation of the agreements.
