The Gazprom Board of Directors expressed its approval of the Company's ongoing efforts with regard to the implementation of its major investment projects. These projects are aimed at providing the Russian population, utility companies and industrial enterprises with reliable energy supplies in the long term, as well as at the accurate fulfillment of export obligations.
Before the end of 2023, three booster compressor stations and dozens of gas wells will be put into operation at the Bovanenkovskoye field of the Yamal gas production center, which is key to the development of the domestic gas sector in the 21st century. Underway is the pre-development of the second key field – Kharasaveyskoye. At present, the construction of the comprehensive gas treatment unit, the booster compressor station and producing wells is in progress.
In eastern Russia, Gazprom is developing its powerful infrastructure complex that comprises gas production, transmission and processing facilities.
Before the end of 2023, the Power of Siberia pipeline will start to receive gas from the second comprehensive gas treatment unit (CGTU-3) of the Kovyktinskoye field in the Irkutsk Region. At present, the site of CGTU-3 is connected to gas and the start-up operations for the equipment are underway there.
New gas wells and the final unit for gas pre-treatment (GPTU-4) are about to be launched at the Chayandinskoye field in Yakutia. Before the end of 2024, the field will reach its full design capacity.
This year, almost 900 kilometers of loopings (pipeline segments that are laid parallel to the main pipeline string) and second workshops at five compressor stations will be brought onstream at the section of the Power of Siberia gas trunkline from the Chayandinskoye field to Blagoveshchensk in the Amur Region. The Company is also building a compressor station at the section of Power of Siberia stretching from the Kovyktinskoye field to the Chayandinskoye field.
The construction of the Amur Gas Processing Plant is underway. The project is 90.7 per cent complete.
As part of the works performed to develop the Sakhalin gas production center, comprehensive tests were successfully completed in 2023 at two final production wells of the Kirinskoye field.
