The parties discussed the progress of the Sakhalin Region’s gas supply & gas infrastructure expansion program for 2021–2025.
At present, a gas pipeline branch together with the Yuzhnaya gas distribution station (GDS) are under construction, and a looping is being laid from the GDS to the active inter-settlement gas pipeline stretching between the Dalneye GDS and CHPP-1 of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.
At the same time, construction is underway on 2 gas pipeline branches, the Dolinsk and Korsakov GDSs, and 4 inter-settlement gas pipelines in the Dolinsky and Korsakovsky Districts.
Gazprom jointly with the Government of the Sakhalin Region is collecting the data on the region’s projected volumes of LNG consumption in order to use them as the basis for drawing up the roadmap for the construction of the LNG infrastructure sufficient to provide off-grid gas supply to the consumers of Sakhalin Island and the Kuril Islands.
Special attention was paid to the prospects of NGV market development in the Sakhalin Region.
As of today:
- 2 CNG filling stations of Gazprom and a compressed natural gas unit are working in the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk
- The design development works for another CNG filling station to be built in the Tymovskoye settlement are nearing completion
- Land plots are being selected for the construction of new NGV refueling infrastructure facilities in Poronaysk and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk
