Gazprom Approves Reconstruction of Processing Complex
The Gazprom Management Committee approved the 2022–2026 Comprehensive Program for the reconstruction and re-equipment of gas and liquid hydrocarbon processing facilities of Gazprom. The document was adopted as a follow-up to the Program for 2021–2025 that is currently in effect. The document aims to maintain the upward trend in the efficiency of Gazprom's processing complex. The activities to be implemented under the Program are designed to further maintain the target amounts of hydrocarbon processing and increase the utilization of certain capacities, as well as to expand the range of the products offered and improve their quality.
The relevant units were tasked to use the Program as a basis for drafting proposals on the development of annual and medium-term investment programs of Gazprom regarding the reconstruction and re-equipment of gas and liquid hydrocarbon processing facilities.
The Management Committee also took note of the information about the performance of the production trains of the Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) and the GPP's construction progress.
It was highlighted that the project's overall degree of readiness is 82.2 per cent. Specifically, start-up and commissioning activities are underway at the third production train, and installation of large equipment has been completed at the fourth production train.
At the fifth production train, large gas separation equipment has been installed, while assembly of steel structures and welding of pipelines continue. At the sixth production train, assembly of steel structures is ongoing and foundation works are nearing completion.
The construction of another two helium production, liquefaction and packaging units is actively progressing (there will be in total three units of this kind at the GPP, and the first of them was put into operation in 2021). The second unit is undergoing start-up and commissioning, and heat exchange equipment is now installed at the third one.
