NOVATEK agreed with the Ministry of Defense on the placement of an LNG terminal in Kamchatka

NOVATEK and the Ministry of Defense have reached a compromise on the location of the LNG terminal in Kamchatka. Previously, the military opposed.

As the RBC, the head of NOVATEK Leonid Mikhelson reported this to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The location of the floating liquefied natural gas regasification terminal had to be shifted by 100 km. A year ago, it became known that the Navy opposed the construction of this terminal in Avachinskaya Bay. The construction of the transshipment terminal in the Bechevinskaya Bay should be completed by the end of 2022. There, liquefied gas will be reloaded from ice-class gas carriers to conventional LNG tankers. It is also planned to build an LNG receiving terminal in Petropavlovsk with a capacity of up to one billion cubic meters of gas per year.

It was previously reported that about 21 billion will be required for dredging during the construction of the LNG terminal in Bechevinskaya Bay. Glavgosexpertiza has already approved the project. 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.
