Dredging contractor again sought for Kamchatka LNG terminal

Dredging contractor again sought for Kamchatka LNG terminal

For the second time Rosmorport announced a tender to find a contractor for dredging at the terminal for transshipment of liquefied gas in Kamchatka. The construction of the terminal in the Bechevinka Bay will begin in 2021. Transit gas in the region can be used at local thermal power plants, so that expensive imported fuel oil can be dispensed with.

According to the press service of the government of Kamchatka, now in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky there is a shortage of natural gas and some of the boiler houses have to be converted to fuel oil. The use of gas could reduce the cost of utilities.

NOVATEK plans to invest in the project. In total, about 200 high-tech jobs will be created at the terminal. So that local personnel can work at the enterprise, training centers will be created in the region and new educational programs for training personnel will be opened.

This year, according to the regional governor Vladimir Solodov, the creation and approval of the terminal project will be completed. In addition to it, they plan to build infrastructure, conduct dredging works and the organization of berths.

It is planned to allocate 12 billion rubles from the federal budget for the project. The first stage of construction work will begin this year.

NOVATEK's project should become the flagship project on the Northern Sea Route: the company accounts for 50 of the 70 million tons of planned cargo transportation along the Northern Sea Route. It was planned to be carried out several years ago, but the land plot was under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Defense, which caused the investor to face difficulties. However, in 2020 pa building permit has been obtained.

According to the announced tender, Rosmorport plans to complete dredging works in the Bechevinsky Bay in 2024. The infrastructure must also be ready by this date. 

The design capacity of the future terminal will be 21,7 million tons of gas per year. This will ensure the required volumes of gas supplies within gasification of the Kamchatka Territory... The terminal project itself included in the program of large projects with state participation
