The company “Rosseti Tyumen” is reconstructing the first chain of overhead lines 110 kV “Olenya-UGP-13” that feeds Urengoyskoye gas condensate field – one of the world’s largest on gas reserves. The electric power transmission lines were built by power engineers in 1984.
Over the decades the amounts of production and the level of development of auxiliary production infrastructure changed considerably, as the press center of “Rosseti Tyumen” reports. The company decided to reconstruct the power transmission lines in order to ensure future demand and increase in reliability of the power complex.
“Thanks to reconstruction, the capacity of the overhead lines “Olenya-UGP-13” will increase. It will cover the current needs of our major consumers and also will form the foundation for further increase in capacity of gas production enterprises in Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. The operating fund of Urengoyskoye field is more than 1300 wells, and we are obliged to provide gas workers with reliable electric power supply”, said Anton Bituyev, the first deputy director general and the chief engineer of “Rosseti Tyumen”.
