Gazprom to build plant on Sakhalin for compressed, liquified natural gas
Gazprom plans to start construction in 2023 of a plant on Russia’s far eastern island of Sakhalin to produce compressed and liquefied natural gas to provide gas supplies to remote areas of the region – include the Kurile Islands.

The announcement followed an agreement between the governor of Sakhalin region, Valery Limarenko and the deputy chairman of Gazprom’s Management Committee, Vitaly Markelov, the regional government said.

    “Gazprom is to build on Sakhalin a modern plant for compressed and liquefied natural gas. This new production centre will be supplied with resources from the Sakhalin-2 project,” the Sakhalin government said in a statement.

    “Specialised vehicles and vessels will deliver the plant’s production to consumers.  Fuel, newly converted into a liquid or fuel gas state, will be taken by pipeline to power stations and to boilers in towns and cities.

    By the fourth quarter of 2021, a plan will be drawn up of demand for liquefied natural gas. On that basis, building plans can for the LNG plant can get underway in Oxtober. Local authorities in the region said “construction of the site should start in 2022.” And by 2023, LNG supplies will begin to the island of Irtup and a year later to the island of Kunashir.

    The programme of providing gas supplies to Sakhalin region over 2021-2025 calls for construction of about 1,200 km of gas pipelines, gas supplies being distributed to more than 35,000 homes and more than 150 enterprises and boilers.

    For remote regions, autonomous gas supplies will be provided for LNG. By 2025, Sakhalin plans to provide gas supplies in full. The level of gas supplies currently stands at about 40%.
