Gazprom: First Gas Compressor Installed at Russkaya CS

The installation of the first gas compressor unit (GCU) started on Friday at the Russkaya compressor station (CS) in the Krasnodar Territory. The station will ensure gas transmission via the South Stream gas pipeline, Gazprom said in a a statement.

The domestically produced Ladoga GCU being installed at the Russkaya CS has a 32 MW capacity, features high efficiency (36 per cent) and low emissions. All in all, the station will be equipped with 14 similar compressor units having an aggregate capacity of 448 MW.

The GCU installation started as per schedule and marked an important milestone in the construction of the Russkaya CS as well as the South Stream gas pipeline.

Russkaya will become the most powerful compressor station: it will annually pump 63 billion cubic meters of natural gas through the Black Sea for over 900 kilometers.
