Gazprom’s Mozdok Grozny Gas Pipeline Launched
An opening ceremony for Gazprom’s Mozdok Grozny gas trunkline took place in Grozny. The Mozdok Grozny gas pipeline runs in the same corridor as the Stavropol Grozny gas pipeline. The new gas pipeline with a 720-millimeter diameter is 101.7 kilometers long. Only pipes of Russian make were used in the course of construction, and crossings were set up on 13 motor roads and six bodies of water, including the Terek River. A state-of-the-art gas distribution station named Grozny with an hourly capacity of 247,000 cubic meters was created as part of the project.
The new high-efficiency facilities of Gazprom’s gas transmission system will further strengthen the reliability of the Chechen Republic’s energy system, including the Grozny TPP, one of its key components. The facilities will also make it possible to bring gas to more consumers.
