On Sakhalin there will be a Japanese micro plant for the liquefaction of natural gas

As part of the visit to Japan by Russian President Vladimir Putin, a memorandum was signed between the Sakhalin Region and the Japanese corporation JGC. The agreement gives a start to the implementation of the ambitious project of a Japanese company to build a high-tech micro-plant on Sakhalin for the liquefaction of natural gas.

The project to build a low-capacity LNG plant in the south of Sakhalin has been discussed since May of this year. The initiative of the Japanese company received support from the Sakhalin government and underwent a detailed study by the relevant regional ministries and departments. In addition, the leadership of the Japanese company has already visited Sakhalin to explore the possibilities of the project.

The planned capacity of the plant will be 15 thousand tons per year of LNG per year. It is assumed that the new production will use gas from Aniva deposits. Products can be supplied to those areas where gas cannot be delivered via the pipeline, in particular to Nevelsky and Kholmsky areas.

In accordance with the signed document, an agreement was reached to conduct a preliminary feasibility study on the construction of the first LNG micro plant on the island. JGC undertakes to carry out an initial study of the project to provide an estimate of its costs and profitability. The Japanese corporation will also prepare preliminary engineering and technical drawings, including flowcharts and a master plan for the site to house the plant.

The regional authorities, for their part, will provide state support to the investor.
