TechnipFMC, in joint-venture with its partners JGC and Chiyoda, has successfully contributed towards the Yamal LNG project’s first cargo. The plant has started to produce LNG from the first train whose annual capacity is 5.5 million t.
The facility in Sabetta, Northern Russia, is one of the world’s largest LNG facilities and is currently being built by TechnipFMC and its partners.
To build such a facility, from November 2014 to August 2017, TechnipFMC fabricated 142 modules in the Asian region to be used in the three LNG trains. The fabrication achieved a record of 50 million man-hours without any lost-time due to injury. All the modules were successfully completed and delivered in a timely manner, via the Suez Canal or Bering Strait.
“This achievement is the result of 44 months of strong collaboration between our client, partners, subcontractors and TechnipFMC, and extraordinary commitment of the teams, more than 65 000 people at peak of activities, from engineering to start-up phases, as well as a remarkable logistics scheme. We have completed the world’s biggest module fabrication, we have overcome the challenge to ship all modules safely and ahead of schedule in the Arctic region, despite extreme climatic conditions and a limited navigation window, experiencing new delivery routes, and, to end, we have started-up the first LNG Train of the plant on schedule”, commented Jean-Marc Aubry, Director of the project.
