About 21 billion rubles will be required for dredging during the construction of an LNG terminal in the Bechevinskaya Bay in the Kamchatka Territory. Glavgosexpertiza has already approved the project.

According to NEDRADV, the volume of work is estimated at 16,5 million cubic meters of soil. Rosmorport noted that the organization will announce the relevant tender by the end of June this year. It is planned that the terminal with a capacity of 21,7 million tons of LNG per year will begin operation in 2023, and in three years will reach its design capacity. In 2020, the Russian government included the Kamchatka LNG terminal in the list of major projects with state participation.

NOVATEK will deliver gas from Yamal via the Northern Sea Route. The new terminal will reload fuel into conventional LNG tankers, which will reduce the use of ice-class LNG carriers. In addition to simplifying fuel logistics, the new terminal will allow to provide gas to the thermal power station of Kamchatka.

The Ministry of Defense refused to build the terminal due to the fact that Bechevinskaya Bay has strategic importance... In April 2020, the Russian government decided to allocate from the federal budget 3,5 billion rubles for construction this transshipment complex.
