YAMAL LNG is an integrated project for natural gas production, liquefaction and marketing
Key Project Advantages
The field development plan provides for the drilling of 208 wells at 19 well drilling pads. Natural gas produced at the field will be delivered to the international markets in a form of liquefied natural gas, or LNG, which requires construction of a liquefaction plant consisting of three (3) production trains of 5.5 mmt annual capacity each. The first train is launched in December 2017. The shipping infrastructure includes a jetty with two tanker loading berths at the port of Sabetta equipped with ice protection barriers. Ice-class LNG carriers of special Arc-7 design are used to transport the LNG to international markets.
The final investment decision on the project was made in December 2013.
Production on the first train commenced on 5 December 2017. Yamal LNG has shipped the first LNG cargo containing 170 thousand cubic meters on 8 December 2017.
We are approximately 91% complete on the overall project at the end of 2017.
