Russia: Gazprom Approves Vladivostok LNG Construction Plans

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.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
