The Gazprom’s Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) construction project, one of the largest infrastructure projects of the company in Russia’s Far East, has reached 61.9% of its completion, according to Neftegaz.
At the 1st and 2nd production trains of the GPP, installation of the core equipment has been completed, process pipelines are being installed and provided with thermal insulation, and start-up and commissioning activities are underway. These two production trains are expected to be operational in 2021.
Process pipelines are also being installed at the 3rd production train, while the installation of steel structures and foundations for large equipment is being finished at the 4th train. At the 5th and 6th trains, foundations are being poured while piperacks and steel structures are being assembled.
Now that the navigation season is in flow, large equipment can now be delivered by sea and river vessels.
The GPP will process multi-component natural gas received via the Power of Siberia gas pipeline from the Yakutia and Irkutsk gas production centers.
