Oil Search (ASX:OSH) has announced it has secured up to US$14 billion ($15.40 billion) worth of financing for its PNG LNG project.
The company said the funds will be more than enough to fund what it expected to be a US$13 billion project, on an agreed 70% gearing basis.
A multinational group of export credit agencies contributed US$8.3 billion to the funding commitments, with the remainder shared between a loan from ExxonMobil and a syndicate of 17 commercial banks.
Oil Search expects to make the first drawdown by mid-February 2010.
