The Mozdok – Grozny gas pipeline runs in the same corridor as the Stavropol - Grozny gas pipeline.
The new gas pipeline with a 720-mm diameter is 101.7 km long.
Only pipes of Russian make were used in the course of construction, and crossings were set up on 13 motor roads and 6 bodies of water, including the Terek River.
A state-of-the-art gas distribution station named Grozny with an hourly capacity of 247,000 m3 was created as part of the project.
The new high-efficiency facilities of Gazprom’s gas transmission system will further strengthen the reliability of the Chechnya’s energy system, including the Grozny TPP, one of its key components.
The facilities will also make it possible to bring gas to more consumers.
Gazprom has been making large-scale efforts for gas supply and gas infrastructure expansion in the region since 2008.
By the start of this year, the company built over 743 km of gas pipelines in Chechnya and created the conditions for connecting 11,800 households to gas.
Currently, Gazprom and the region are cooperating under a new 5-year program for 2021–2025.
A synchronization plan for gas infrastructure expansion in 2021 is in effect.
Gazprom has completed the construction of 4 inter-settlement gas pipelines in the Groznensky District and 3 in the Shalinsky District.
These facilities are now undergoing start-up and commissioning.
Gazprom continues building 13 gas pipelines in the Groznensky, Gudermessky and Shalinsky Districts.
Before the end of the year, Gazprom plans to start laying another 3 gas pipelines in the city of Grozny and in the Achkhoy-Martanovsky and Urus-Martanovsky Districts.
