28 billion rubles will be allocated to the LNG terminal in Kamchatka

28 billion rubles will be allocated to the LNG terminal in Kamchatka

Novatek, which is implementing a project for the construction of a terminal for transshipping liquefied natural gas in Kamchatka, will receive 2020 billion rubles from the federal budget in 28. The money will be allocated to provide state support to the investor.

The terminal for transshipment of liquefied natural gas in Kamchatka is needed by NOVATEK to reduce the number of expensive ice tankers to cross the Northern Sea Route. In March, the Russian government approved a comprehensive plan the implementation of the construction of a sea transshipment complex of liquefied natural gas on the peninsula. They will build two floating LNG storage facilities, an access channel in the Bechevinsky bay, a berth of the port fleet, create a system to ensure the safe movement of ships. 

It was planned that the issue of gasification of the region would be resolved due to the boil-off gas generated during transportation, however, Deputy Prime Minister and Plenipotentiary of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev said at a meeting in Kamchatka that this method would cost more than 90 billion rubles. According to the press service of the regional government, a less expensive option is to build a terminal without a gas pipeline, but then the fuel will cost almost as much as on the world market.

The plenipotentiary proposed to analyze the possibility of using natural thermal energy by the type of Mutnovskaya geothermal power station. He instructed the relevant departments to analyze the economy of each option within two months and suggest the most effective one.
