Opportunity to change limits of checkpoint zones in the sea port of Sabetta was discussed in Salekhard.
The sitting of the coordinating council of the sea checkpoint across the state border of the Russian Federation in the sea port of Sabetta took place there.
A deputy chief of the Ural territorial board of the Federal Agency for the Development of the State Border Facilities of the Russian Federation (Rosgranitsa) Alexander Sidorov, representatives of the government of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, regional boards of Rospotrebnadzor (the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Well-Being), Rosselkhoznadzor (the Board of the Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Monitoring Service), the Yamal-Nenets customs service, the company «Yamal LNG» participated in its work.
In particular, the talk within the sitting was about increase of limits of checkpoint zones and creation of the special committee on solving of this issue. Its first sitting will take place in the beginning of next year. The chief of the Yamal-Nenets customs service Sergey Kravchukov told about creation of the office of the Salekhard customs post of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug in the port of Sabetta. According to his words, next year it is planned that amounts of cargoes will grow, and it needs to be ready to this. This year the service faced the fact that not only cargoes for the project «Yamal LNG» but also other goods were going. Arrival of 27 ships and departure of 28 ships was registered during the latest navigation. In 2015 it is planned to open the office in Sabetta with 5 employees, who will stay there permanently on a rotational basis. Now building of the checkpoint of the customs post in the sea port of Sabetta is on the initial stage. By 2016 it is planned to create the full-scale object with all infrastructures and constructions. Already next year it is supposed to let pass more than 3 million tons of imported cargoes across the customs – approximately 100-150 ships.
Sergey Kravchukov tells about the issues of development of the port infrastructure and inculcation of additional berths. The problem is in so that when ships stay in the checkpoint, employees cannot take others for unloading; therefore they stay idle in waiting.
As Alexander Sidorov notes, these issues are being solved, next year limits of checkpoint zones on water areas of the sea port of Sabetta will be enlarged. He gave the representatives of the coordinating council the technological scheme of pass for persons, transport vehicles, cargoes, goods and animals across the state border.
As we should note, the sea cargo permanent multilateral checkpoint across the state border of the Russian Federation in the sea port of Sabetta was set according to the decree of the government of the Russian Federation of the 26th of December of 2013. The port was opened for foreign ships. Its work, first of all, is connected with processing of hydrocarbons of the South-Tambey field on the plant on liquefying of natural gas «Yamal LNG». The expected capacity of natural gas will make 16 million and 500 thousand tons of LNG and one million tons of gas condensate per year. Building of the plant is fulfilled in three stages, startup of which will take place in the end of 2016, 2017 and 2018.
