Gazprom built 432 km, 54% of the pipeline section between Chayandinskoye & Kovyktinskoye fields

China is seen as a growing market for Russian pipeline gas, especially against the background of the accelerating energy transition in Europe

Gazprom built 432 km, 54% of the pipeline section between Chayandinskoye & Kovyktinskoye fields

St.Petersburg, October 29 - Neftegaz.RU. Russia’s energy major Gazprom continues pre-development operations at the Chayandinskoye field, which forms the basis for the Yakutia gas production center.
Systematic development of gas producing wells is underway at the field, and the construction of auxiliary production facilities for the oil rim is nearing completion.

Gas from Chayandinskoye is going into the Power of Siberia gas pipeline.
Power of Siberia started pumping gas from the Chayandinskoye field in East Siberia in December 2019 and plans to ramp up to its 38 Bcm/year capacity in the coming years.
New compressor stations are now being built to consistently increase the pipeline's throughput.

Starting from 2023, Power of Siberia will be receiving gas from the Kovyktinskoye field in the Irkutsk Region.
To that end, Gazprom is actively building the pipeline section between Kovyktinskoye and Chayandinskoye.

The works are going on schedule, as of today:
  • 432 out of 803.4 km (i.e. almost 54 % of the section's overall length) have been welded, laid, and backfilled
  • the 1st of 2 microtunnels within the gas pipeline's submerged crossing under the Lena River is currently being built
At Kovyktinskoye, production drilling and construction of infrastructure facilities continue.
The ongoing operations include the setting up of foundation bases, installation of steel structures and equipment for the top-priority comprehensive gas treatment unit № 2 (CGTU-2), construction of the condensate pipeline, foundation works and installation of steel structures for CGTU-3.

In September, Gazprom´s Chairman Alexey Miller said that gas supplies via the Power of Siberia pipeline have reached 10 billion m3.
Gazprom intends to become China’s biggest gas supplier, accounting for more than 25 % of Chinese imports by 2035.
