equipment of metallurgical production and a high-pressure boiler house, furnaces of the body-processing and tool shops. This will allow not only switching to environmentally friendly gas, but also reducing production costs. The third and final stage involves the installation of an external pipeline with a total length of 6.5 km. In addition, as part of this stage, an on-site medium-pressure gas pipeline will be built, as well as internal pipelines at gasification facilities. The Sevmash gasification project was developed by LLC Morneftegazstroy and passed the state expertise.

It should be noted that the enterprise is simultaneously modernizing production, new equipment is being supplied to the shops. As part of the implementation of the federal target program in metallurgical production, more than twenty furnaces have already been converted to operate on natural gas. It is planned to complete gasification at the enterprise in December 2021. Liquefied propane-butane, which operates compressor stations, boiler houses and metallurgical equipment, will be replaced by natural gas, which is considered an environmentally friendly product.
