The planned capacity of the Amur GPP will be reduced from 49 to 42 billion cubic meters

The number of gas processing plants that cleanse gas and allocate valuable fractions before gas supplies via the export gas pipeline to China and their capacity at the Amur GPP was downgraded by Gazprom

The planned capacity of the Amur GPP will be reduced from 49 to 42 billion cubic meters
This was reported to Interfax by a source familiar with the situation.

According to him, earlier it was planned to build 7 units with the capacity of 7 billion cubic meters. M of gas, now the project involves the construction of 6 installations for 7 billion cubic meters. m of gas per year.

Thus, the source noted, 9 plants will be built at the Amur GPP, 6 of them for gas processing, 3 - for the release of helium and nitrogen.

“Indeed, during the design of the Amur GPP, the number of technological lines was optimized to six. Recycling 42 billion cubic meters meters of gas allows for the supply of gas to China in accordance with contractual obligations, ”the press service of Gazprom confirmed.

In 2014, Gazprom and CNPC signed a gas purchase and sale agreement for the Eastern route (via the Power of Siberia gas pipeline). The contract was concluded for a period of 30 years and involves the supply of Russian gas to China in the amount of 38 billion cubic meters. m per year.
According to a source familiar with the situation, it is planned to build two gas processing lines (14 billion cubic meters of gas per year) and one line for the separation of helium. "The launch of the plant is planned for 2021 year," Gazprom said in the last Eurobond prospectus.

The plant will be built in five stages - the first stage involves the launch of two units for gas. Construction is expected to be completed in 2024 year.

Another source familiar with the situation told Interfax that the optimization of the number of facilities will not affect the production volumes at the Chayandinskoye and Kovykta deposits, which are a resource base for gas pipeline supplies. According to him, earlier the capacity of the Amur Gas Processing Plant was supposed to be higher in view of the possible increase in supplies in the future, and was adjusted by the results of studying the demand for gas to China.

German engineering company Linde and a subsidiary of SIBUR, NIPIgazpererabotka (general contractor for the construction of Amur GPP), signed a binding contract for engineering and supply of equipment for all five phases of plant construction at the end of December 2015.
