The total project capacity of three launched lines makes 16 million 500 thousand tonnes of LNG per year or 5 million 500 thousand tonnes for each line. This information was given to the news agency “Sever-Press” in the press center of NOVATEK.
“Successful beginning of work of the third line on liquefying obviously confirms that “Yamal LNG” is a unique project in the world LNG industry. We achieved for observation of the planned budget and started up the third line ahead of the initial schedule on more than a year. This fact has no analogues in the branch known with often exceeding of budgets and delays in project implementation. We became one of global players of the world gas market and received unique experience of designing and building of arctic LNG-projects. This experience will be used at building of next LNG-projects in this region rich with hydrocarbons. The fourth experimental industrial stage of “Yamal LNG” will be built with use of technology “Arctic Cascade” patented by NOVATEK and also Russian equipment”, as the chairman of the board of NOVATEK Leonid Mikhelson said.
NOVATEK is one of the largest independent natural gas producers in Russia. In 2017 the company entered the international gas market due to the successful startup of the project “Yamal LNG”. Extractive fields and license areas of NOVATEK are located mainly in Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
