This year, the design of the facilities and infrastructure of the NOVATEK terminal for the transshipment of liquefied gas in Bechevinka Bay in Kamchatka will be completed. The first phase of construction will also begin in 2020.

According to the press service of the regional government, the interim governor Vladimir Solodov has agreed with the company that Kamchatka will be able to use part of the transit gas for local thermal power plants. This will help to abandon the expensive imported fuel oil and, in the future, reduce the cost of heat and electricity in the region.

With the advent of the terminal in Kamchatka, about 200 high-tech jobs will be created. Training centers will be opened in the region to prepare local specialists, and new educational programs will appear.

By the end of 2022, NOVATEK intends to build a transshipment terminal in Bechevinskaya Bay in Kamchatka, where liquefied gas will be loaded from ice-class gas carriers to LNG tankers. In April of this year, the Russian government decided to allocate from the federal budget 3,5 billion rubles for construction this transshipment complex.
