A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Sergey Chemezov, Director General of the state-owned Rostec Corporation, was recently held in Moscow.

The meeting participants reviewed the potential areas of cooperation between Gazprom and Rostec enterprises, including the transportation of liquid helium from the Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) for the purpose of exporting it via the Logistics Center in the Primorye Territory.

Gazprom Gazenergoset Geliy, Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo, and KAMAZ (part of Rostec) signed a cooperation agreement in the presence of Alexey Miller and Sergey Chemezov.

According to the document, Gazprom Gazenergoset Geliy (the company authorised to implement the Helium Tank Logistics Center investment project) plans to purchase gas-powered vehicles to transport liquid helium. To that end, freight trucks fuelled by LNG will be used. Batch production of these trucks will be carried out at the facilities of KAMAZ. The infrastructure for producing LNG and refuelling these trucks will be set up by Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo.

As a follow-up to the agreement, Gazprom Gazenergoset Geliy and KAMAZ signed an action plan (roadmap).

The first 18 LNG-fuelled trucks that will transport helium in special thermally-insulated containers are expected to be delivered in 2021.
