More than 70% of the projects concern oil and electric power, with those related to refining and electricity given budgets of at least $12 billion and $9 billion, respectively, according to a report by Japan’s Nikkei business daily.

For refining, product storage, and port facility development, Petrovietnam is believed to be interested in holding talks with Mitsui & Co., Mitsubishi Corp., Itochu Corp., Sumitomo Corp., Marubeni Corp., Sojitz Corp., Idemitsu Kosan Co., and JGC Corp.

Petrovietnam plans to list as many as 50 Japanese companies as potential joint-venture partners and hold one-on-one talks with them over the 3 days starting June 22, the business daily said.

For these talks, Petrovietnam Chairman Dinh La Thang will visit Japan from June 21 and may meet with Economy, Trade, and Industry Minister Masayuki Naoshima.

To secure loans for the projects, Petrovietnam also will likely hold talks with private Japanese financial institutions as well as the Japan Bank for International Cooperation.
