162,000 tonnes of cargo delivered to construction site of LNG production/storage/shipment facility in the Leningrad Region
The construction of an LNG production/storage/shipment facility at the Portovaya compressor station in the Portovaya Bay of the Baltic Sea (Vyborgsky District of the Leningrad Region) began slightly more than a year ago. From 22 December 2017, when OOO SRDI Oil & Gas “PETON” had its first cargo delivered to the construction site, North-Western Customs has cleared over 162,000 tonnes of cargo with the federal budget having received more than RUB 2 billion of customs payments. According to the Customs, the components for construction of the facility were delivered by both maritime and road transport.
The project is focused on production and sale of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the most promising fuel as well as ensuring autonomous gasification of consumers in the Kaliningrad Region.
Liquefied natural gas, an environmentally friendly type of fuel, has already taken a considerable part of the global power balance. The facility intended for local gasification and foothold in the Baltic states will be one of the most economically important LNG projects in Russia. The facility’s service life is at least 25 years. Annual capacity of the facility will be 1.5 mln t.
Today, a 42,000-cbm LNG tank and caisson foundation for berths are being built at the construction site occupying 65 hectares.
The project was awarded by Gazprom to OOO SRDI Oil & Gas “PETON”. The construction is being performed with the use of the most advanced equipment and technologies.
