Gazprom eyeing fourth LNG train at Sakhalin-2

Fourth LNG liquefaction train could reportedly be on the cards for the Sakhalin-2, Russia’s first liquefied natural gas export plant.

Deputy CEO of the Russian giant Gazprom, Alexander Medvedev said at a summit, that the joint venture project with Shell could double the producing capacity with the addition of a fourth liquefaction train, Reuters reports.

The two companies signed a memorandum on implementing the project for constructing the third train at the LNG plant within Sakhalin II in June this year.

Medvedev said the feed gas supply is the key issue in plans to expand the Sakhalin-2 plant’s capacity while all technical requirements are in place.

He added that the company is looking into options of sourcing gas either from the Eosnef-ExxonMobile, Sakhalin-1 field its own Yuzhno-Kirinskoye deposit.

Medvedev confirmed that current market conditions, as well as the sanctions imposed by the EU and, United States, will not hinder Gazprom’s investment in LNG projects.
