LNG production to be increased by 10 mln. Tons in Sakhalin - Khoroshavin
The Governor of the Sakhalin Region, Alexander Khoroshavin, speaking at the session "The Role of LNG in Russia's Energy Future" at the XXI World Petroleum Congress, said that he expects to create new capacities for the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on Sakhalin by 2020. In particular, it is planned to build the third production line of the LNG plant operating in the region and create a new enterprise for the production of liquefied natural gas "Far East LNG".
The development of production is facilitated by the existence of a clear strategy in this area of the President and the Government of the Russian Federation, the press service of the governor reports. At present, preliminary design documentation for the construction project under the existing third line production capacity up to 5 million tons of products is already being developed.
Another 5 million tons of LNG will presumably be produced by a new plant called Far Eastern LNG, initiated by Rosneft. By the end of 2014, it is planned to complete the design work, and by 2020 the first stage of the LNG plant will be launched. The preference for the location of the new production is given to the village of Ilyinskoye on the southwestern coast of Sakhalin.
