Gazprom completes feasibility study for the construction of the Soyuz Vostok gas trunkline to China via Mongolia with a capacity of 50 billion cu.m. – Gazprom statement
A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Sainbuyan Amarsaikhan, Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia, took place via a video link and the two sides signed a statement on the results of the feasibility study.

    According to the study, the route of the pipeline will stretch for 962.9 km in Mongolian territory, the pipes will be 1,400 millimeters in diameter, and five compressor stations will be installed. The scope of works performed as part of the feasibility study includes the calculation of investment and operating costs.

    In accordance with the feasibility study, the construction of the pipeline is recognised as economically feasible.

    Alexey Miller thanked Sainbuyan Amarsaikhan for the assistance provided by Mongolia. For instance, Mongolian companies performed the required on-site surveys, engineering and environmental mapping, and route analysis for the Soyuz Vostok project. The data obtained were used in the development of the gas pipeline route.    The feasibility study for the Soyuz Vostok pipeline was prepared by a specially appointed company Gazoprovod Soyuz Vostok.

1650 hydrogen molecules per hour

The Novosibirsk scientists have proposed a new efficient method for synthesis of a highly active photocatalyst for hydrogen production under the action of sunlight. The materials developed are porous “sponges” made of graphite-like carbon nitride with platinum nanoparticles. The system showed one of the highest values of photocatalytic activity, among all known analogues, with a low content of noble metals, the Russian Science Foundation says.
