The project of construction of the second LNG plant on Sakhalin passed the pre-feasibility stage

Sakhalin Oblast Governor Alexander Khoroshavin took part in a meeting of the Presidential Commission on the Strategy for the Development of the Fuel and Energy Complex and Environmental Safety.

The Governor is confident that due to the formation of a special commodity stage of gas - liquid - the new production will diversify export supplies from the region and the country.

During the meeting, Vladimir Putin emphasized that "the development of new deposits will largely depend on the saturation of our domestic market and the increase in export volumes to the Asia-Pacific countries with growing demand."

Alexander Khoroshavin said that the Sakhalin government is continuing to work with Rosneft and ExxonMobil to create a second natural gas liquefaction plant in Sakhalin. Production will be focused on the Asia-Pacific markets and should be about 5 million tons per year.

“With the participation of the regional government, issues on the reservation of land plots for the construction of the plant have recently been resolved, and the necessary data for the design has been provided. Thus, according to our estimates, the time frame for developing a pre-feasibility study for deciding on the construction of the plant was reduced by four months. Currently, the project has already passed the pre-feasibility study stage, ”the governor commented.

In addition, the regional budget has reserved about 3 billion rubles for the formation of social and engineering infrastructure in the field of health, education, culture and sports for employees of the future plant and members of their families.
