The company has a number of LNG production projects underway.
Gazprom also pays special attention to the development of mid-scale LNG complexes, for instance, those designed to bring gas to localities that are situated far away from gas trunklines.
The 1st of these projects was implemented in the Perm Territory: a small-scale LNG plant and 3 natural gas receiving, storage and regasification stations have been in operation here since 2014.
Gazprom is now working to implement similar projects in the Tomsk and Sakhalin Regions.
The Company is actively working to expand the use of LNG in transport, namely in motor, water and railroad transport.
For instance, thermally-insulated containers with liquid helium from the Amur GPP are being transported by special-purpose KAMAZ trucks powered by LNG.
In addition, agreements on small-scale LNG complexes in the Amur and Volgograd Regions were signed at St. Petersburg International Gas Forum 2021.
These agreements will, inter alia, facilitate the expansion of the NGV market.
The Gazprom Group is also planning to expand the use of LNG in its own railroad transport.
For instance, an LNG-powered shunter was developed for Gazpromtrans.
The 1st of such shunters is expected to enter pilot operation before the end of this year.
