Pre-development of the Kovyktinskoye field in the Irkutsk Region is underway: production drilling is taking place at the moment, and the filling works have commenced on the site for the construction of the first CGTU.
Construction and installation works are nearing completion at the Moskvitin compressor station (CS) on the Power of Siberia gas pipeline, and the facilities of the project's next stage are already being built. Preparatory activities are ongoing at the section of the pipeline route from the Kovyktinskoye field to the Chayandinskoye field.
Within the Amur Gas Processing Plant (Amur GPP) construction project, start-up and commissioning continues at the first 2 production trains. The installation of gas separation equipment has been completed at the 3rd and 4th production trains. At the 5th and 6th trains, the assembly of piperacks and the installation of process equipment have started. Overall, the project's readiness is at 67.1 %.
Gazprom is making further efforts to expand the Sakhalin - Khabarovsk - Vladivostok gas pipeline at the section between Komsomolsk-on-Amur and Khabarovsk. More than half of its linear part - 237 km - has been welded to date.
In the Nadym-Pur-Taz region, Gazprom is bringing to a close the integrated project for liquid hydrocarbon transportation. As part of these activities, the following facilities will be built: the Urengoy – Pur-Pe oil and condensate pipeline, a connecting condensate pipeline, the Urengoyskaya oil pumping station, and a condensate stabilization unit. The facilities will transport condensate extracted from the Achimov deposits of the Urengoyskoye field.
The company is developing the Yamal gas production center. In the current year, for instance, 52 gas wells will be hooked up at the Bovanenkovskoye field. At the Kharasaveyskoye field, production wells are being drilled, and a connecting gas pipeline stretching to Bovanenkovskoye is being welded and laid.
The capacities of the northern gas transmission corridor are undergoing an expansion. The 2nd workshops at the Chikshinskaya CS and Novoprivodinskaya and Novoyubileynaya CSs are being prepared to come onstream. Gas transmission facilities are being built at the section from Gryazovets to the under-construction Slavyanskaya CS.
Near the settlement of Ust-Luga, the project for the creation of an integrated complex for natural gas processing and liquefaction (the gas processing complex that forms part of the Complex for processing ethane-containing gas near the settlement of Ust-Luga) is in progress. The future construction site is currently being cleared.
