Timing of construction of Novatek terminal in Kamchatka threatens to break

Timing of construction of Novatek terminal in Kamchatka threatens to break

A delay in the construction of federal facilities for the creation of the Novatek transshipment complex in Kamchatka threatens to disrupt the deadline for the facility. This was announced at a meeting on the development of the Northern Sea Route by the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, Alexander Kozlov.

To transport its products, Novatek is building a transshipment complex in Kamchatka. It requires dredging, aids to navigation and a pier. This infrastructure belongs to the jurisdiction of the federal authorities, and therefore is financed from the budget. Earlier, the Russian government approved the allocation of funding for these purposes.

According to Alexander Kozlov, the tender procedures did not take place, since the value of the objects confirmed by Glavgosexpertiza was lower than the market value. The Ministry of Transport initiated a redesign. Based on its results, it will become clear how much additional funding will be required.

"If the relevant facilities are not commissioned in the first quarter of 2022, then the timing of the construction of the transshipment complex may be disrupted," said the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East.

The chairman of the board of Novatek, Leonid Mikhelson, told Mishustin that an urgent need to conclude a contract for the creation of federal property for the transshipment of gas in Kamchatka. According to him, the contract for dredging works in the Bechevinsky Bay must be concluded no later than February in order to complete work in the first quarter of 2022. According to Mikhelson, this will ensure the required volumes of gas supplies within gasification of the Kamchatka Territory.

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. The so-called stripping gas, which is formed after refueling, will be used for the needs of Kamchatka.

Recently construction of the complex included in the program of large projects with state participation... In April this year, the Russian government decided to allocate from the federal budget 3,5 billion rubles for construction object.
