Gazprom companies to promote use of LNG as locomotive fuel

Gazpromtrans and Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo signed a cooperation agreement to promote the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as fuel for locomotives operating at the Obskaya-Bovanenkovo railroad. 

Gazprom noted in a statement on Friday that the two company units are looking to promote the use of LNG for the purposes of power generation at railroad infrastructure facilities.

It is planned to create a small-scale LNG production complex near the Obskaya railroad station and to set up platforms for mobile CNG filling stations, along with servicing points for locomotives of Gazpromtrans at the Obskaya, Razyezd 15 and Karskaya stations.

The Obskaya – Bovanenkovo railroad ensures year-round delivery of technical equipment, construction materials and personnel to Yamal fields in the harsh Arctic climate.

The railroad stretches for 572 kilometers from the Obskaya station to the Karskaya station (525 kilometers to the Bovanenkovo station). It includes 5 stations, 12 passing loops, and 70 bridges with a total length of more than 12 kilometers. The entire railroad was opened for traffic in 2011.
