"Details of the project should be finalised by mid-2010," said SCG President Kan Trakulhoon. "At present, we are evaluating fund-raising sources, which will depend on the project's attractiveness and global financial conditions," he was quoted as telling the Nation, an English-language newspaper.

SCG signed a partnership deal with Qatar Petroleum on November 25, according to the daily. They will hold a 71 percent stake in the $3.5-4 billion project.
