Last year two booster compressor stations and new wells were input to operation, they allowed bringing the field to the new level of peak production rate in 264 million cubic meters of gas per day. This year it is planned to input to operation one more booster compressor station. Construction of the third gas deposit, which will allow bringing the field to the project production level in 115 milliard cubic meters of gas per year, is continued.
The gas pipeline “Bovanenkovo — Ukhta 2” with a length about 1260 kilometers was input to operation this January. Construction of the gas pipeline “Ukhta — Torzhok 2” is continued: this year it is planned to input to operation about 500 kilometers of 970 kilometers of the linear part.
Modern and high efficient gas pipelines of the Northern corridor are a part of the new route for delivering of Russian gas to the European market – along the gas pipeline “Nord stream 2”. The way from Yamal through the Baltic Sea to North-Western Europe is the shortest, reliable and effective export channel.
