Gazprom moving forward with Ust-Luga LNG project

Published by
LNG Industry,

According to a company statement, the Gazprom Management Committee recently took note of information regarding the status of the project for the creation of an integrated complex for natural gas processing and liquefaction in the Leningrad Region (the gas processing complex as part of the complex for processing ethane-containing gas near Ust-Luga). It is the anchor project of the major gas processing and chemical cluster that is being established in the region.

The complex will have the largest capacity in Russia in terms of gas processing (45 billion m3/yr) and will be the largest in northwestern Europe in terms of LNG production (13 million tpy). In addition to LNG, its commercial products will include ethane fraction, liquefied petroleum gases and pentane-hexane fraction.

By now, the basic design solutions for the project, as well as the specifications for feedstock and commercial products, have been agreed upon. The project operator has been issued the technical specifications for connecting the complex to Gazprom’s gas transmission system, and the drafting of the design documentation has begun. Engineering surveys have been fully completed at the construction site, which is currently being cleared and prepared for construction works.

Meanwhile, efforts are underway to attract project financing from Russian and international credit institutions.

In 2020, there are plans for, inter alia, the submission of design documentation for a state expert review, the placement of orders for long-lead equipment, and the selection of an EPC contractor for the gas processing units and off-site facilities, as well as an EPCM contractor for project management.
