LNG plant in Ust-Luga
Investment: about 1 trillion RUB
Capacity: 13 MTPA
RusKhimAlyans builds a plant to process and liquefy natural gas in Ust-Luga. The plant will process 45 bn cm of gas per annum and will produce 13 mt of LNG. The project includes construction of a gas-to-chemicals plant (operator: Baltic Chemical Complex) which will process ethane-containing gas.
Arctic LNG 1
Operator: Arctic LNG 1
Capacity: 20 MTPA
Status: engineering and geological surveys
Arctic LNG 1 is the third NOVATEK’s project for gas production and liquefaction. It is planned that the plant will produce about 20 MTPA of LNG. The project will be located in the Taz district of YaNAO.
Arctic LNG 2
Operator: Arctic LNG 2
Date of commissioning: projected for 2023
Capacity: 19,8 MTPA
NOVATEK informs that 17 development wells have been already drilled at the Utrennee field. Current investment in the project has already exceeded US$7,5bn. Overall project investment is estimated at US$21,3bn. Arctic LNG 2 project includes construction of 3 trains with a capacity of 6,6 MTPA. Train 1 commissioning of Arctic LNG 2 is scheduled for 2023; Train 2 - 2024; Train 3 - 2025-2026.
LNG plant in the Amur region
Operator: Gazprom Helium Service
Capacity: 1,500 kg/h
This LNG plant is to be constructed in the Amur region. The company will transport propane, butane, and helium from the Amur Gas Processing Plant. Gazprom Helium Service — an authorized company for the implementation of the investment project “Logistics centre for servicing helium containers” which will be delivered from the Amur Gas Processing Plant and exported through the ports of the Primorye province. Gazprom Helium Service became a resident of Svobodny Territory of Accelerated Growth (Amur region). The new status allows receiving preferences and benefits for the project development.
LNG production plant and oil terminal in Yakutia
Initiator: pentalateral agreement was signed by Far East Development Corporation, RossOil, Starway, Gazprom LNG Technologies, Investment and Export Support Agency of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia)
This project is under development in Pavlovsk village of the Megino-Kangalass ulus. In August 2021, Starway signed an agreement with administrations of the Megino-Kangalass ulus, Nizhny Bestyakh village on construction of a jetty in Pavlovsk village. So the development of infrastructure-related projects in Pavlovsk is now expected. The works on the Yakut Gas project which includes Yakut LNG plant continue: the project is under development; resource base is under preparation.
Reconstruction of a cryogenic unit at the Minnibay gas processing station in Tatarstan for deep processing of dry stripped gas to release LNG and gaseous helium
Capacity: a unit will be built to release gaseous helium of A brand in a volume of 504 thsd cm per annum; LNG production capacity is 10,3 thsd tonnes per annum
The new modification of this cryogenic unit is aimed to use feedstock to the fullest, to optimise technological processes of gas processing and to improve ecology of production. The technologies applied within the project will allow mitigating the carbon footprint by 95%. That reconstruction project was approved by the National Ecological Inspection and Glavgosexpertiza of Russia.
