Russia: Gazprom Approves Vladivostok LNG Construction Plans

Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee held a meeting at the company’s headquarters regarding the Vladivostok-LNG project.

The meeting participants discussed, in particular, creation of a resource base for the LNG plant near Vladivostok over a long-term period. Special attention was also paid to the information on the potential capacity of the Asia-Pacific markets for Russian liquefied natural gas sales,” Gazprom said in a statement.

Based on the meeting results the approval was given to the Action Plan for the LNG plant construction project and the Work Plan for establishing the project’s resource base,” Gazprom added.

In February 2013 the Vladivostok-LNG project entered the investment stage – Gazprom’s Management Committee approved the Investment Rationale for the LNG plant construction near Vladivostok.

The project envisages building an LNG plant on the Lomonosov Peninsula (Perevoznaya Bay). The plant will have three process trains with the annual capacity of 5 million tons of LNG each.

The first process train will be put onstream in 2018. Gas from the Sakhalin gas production center as well as the Yakutia and Irkutsk centers will serve as the resource base. The target markets are represented by the Asia-Pacific countries.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
