RusGazDobycha and Gazprom are implementing a project on creation of the Complex for processing ethane-containing gas (CPEG) near Ust-Luga, Leningrad region. The Complex will include an integrated complex for processing and liquefaction of natural gas (a gas processing complex/GPC) and a gas chemical complex (GCC). The CPEG is also planned to include creation of marine terminals for finished products shipment.
|Number of created jobs (CPEG): over 5,000|
|Implementation period (CPEG): 2019–2024|
|Project: gas processing complex|
|Investor: RusKhimAlyans, a joint venture of Gazprom and RusGazDobycha|
|Project: gas chemical complex|
|Investor: Baltic Chemical Complex, a subsidiary of RusGazDobycha|
The GPC will become the largest enterprise in Russia in terms of gas processing and the largest in Northwestern district in terms of production of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The Complex will be annually processing 45 billion m3 of gas, producing 13 million tonnes of LNG, as well as ethane and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
The enterprise will be processing ethane-containing natural gas extracted by Gazprom from the Achimov and Valanginian deposits of the Nadym-Pur-Taz region. Natural gas remained after processing will be delivered to the gas transmission system.
Implementation of the project will allow increasing the volume of Russian export of LNG and LPG to the international market. Ethane will be delivered to the GCC, which is technologically connected to the enterprise and will be producing up to 3 million tonnes of polymers per year.
Economic Development Agency of Leningrad Region provides comprehensive support to implementation of the project.
