The Gazprom Management reviewed status of the project for the creation of an integrated complex for natural gas processing and liquefaction in the Leningrad Region. The complex will have the largest capacity in Russia in terms of gas processing of 45 billion cubic meters per year and will be the largest in north western Europe in terms of liquefied natural gas production of 13 million tons per year. In addition to LNG, its commercial products will include ethane fraction, liquefied petroleum gases, and pentane-hexane fraction. By now, the basic design solutions for the project, as well as the specifications for feedstock and commercial products, have been agreed upon. The project operator has been issued the technical specifications for connecting the complex to Gazprom's gas transmission system, and the drafting of the design documentation has begun. Engineering surveys have been fully completed at the construction site, which is currently being cleared and prepared for construction works.

Meanwhile, efforts are underway to attract project financing from Russian and international credit institutions.

Gazprom and RusGazDobycha are implementing the project for a gas processing and liquefaction complex near the settlement of Ust-Luga, with RusKhimAlyans as the project operator. The complex will be processing ethane-containing gas, which will be supplied via allocated gas pipelines from Gazprom's deposits in the Nadym-Pur-Taz region. A gas chemical facility technologically interconnected with the complex will be constructed by RusGazDobycha. The gas remaining after the processing will go into Gazprom's gas transmission system. The ethane produced by the complex will be processed by the abovementioned gas chemical facility with an output of up to 3 million tons of various polyethylene grades. The commissioning of the facilities will be synchronized: the first trains will come onstream in the fourth quarter of 2023, and the second trains – in the fourth quarter of 2024.
