Russian giant Gazprom is progressing a number of gas pipeline projects with three major projects already over 90 percent complete. 

The company said in its statement that a total of 2,064 kilometers of pipes are already welded and laid for the Power of Siberia gas pipeline between Yakutia and the Russian-Chinese border. This translates into 95.5 percent of the pipeline length.

Construction of facilities for the first start-up complex of the Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) is running at full speed, the company said.

The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline construction project is also running on schedule, Gazprom said, with offshore pipelaying underway in the exclusive economic zone of Finland and in German territorial waters.

As of October 26, 1,775 kilometers of the two strings of the TurkStream are ready, which translates into 95 percent of the overall length of pipeline’s offshore section.

The landfall near the Russian town of Anapa is completed and the ongoing start-up operations will be finished in 2018.

In addition, a receiving terminal is being constructed near the Turkish settlement of Kiyikoy, Gazprom said.

Both the Nord Stream 2 and the TurkStream pipelines are planned to come into operation before the end of 2019.

Gazprom added it is continuing the development of its gas liquefaction capacities building an LNG production, storage and shipment complex near the Portovaya compressor station.

Specifically, a gas pipeline branch is already completed, and work is in progress on the core process facilities of the complex, the onshore LNG storage tank, and the offshore shipment terminal.
