Yamal LNG reaches full capacity

Published by
LNG Industry,

Total has announced that LNG exports from the third train of the Yamal LNG project in Russia have commenced.

According to the statement, this milestone has been reached a year ahead of the initial schedule and within the original budget. The Yamal facility has now reached its full planned capacity of 16.5 million tpy less than one year after the first shipment of LNG from the project in December last year.

Total claims that the startup of Train 3 has occurred one week after the project shipped its 100th LNG cargo.

The Chairman and CEO of Total, Patrick Pouyanné, said: “We are proud of the successful launch of all three LNG trains of the Yamal LNG project less than a year after the startup of the plant. This constitutes an unprecedented achievement for the industry.

“The positive experience of Yamal LNG paves the way for further LNG developments alongside our strategic partner Novatek, including Arctic LNG 2, the next major development based on giant low costs resources in Russia’s far north.”
