OOO Gazprom LNG Vladivostok - the project for the construction of a plant for the production of liquefied natural gas in the region of Vladivostok received a positive conclusion of the state examination on the design documentation and the results of engineering surveys at the first stage of its construction. This project is of exceptional importance for increasing the production of Russian LNG and its supply to the markets of the Asia-Pacific region.

According to the press service of Gazprom, the received conclusion confirms: the work stipulated by the project documentation and the results of engineering surveys allow ensuring the safe construction of the first stage of the LNG plant and fully comply with the current legislation.

According to Igor Krutikov, General Director of Gazprom LNG Vladivostok, the implementation of the project to build an LNG plant in the Primorsky Territory is currently not lagging behind the approved schedule.

The project implementation schedule consists of three stages. At the first stage, for which a positive expert opinion has been received at the moment, is the construction of a pioneer exit facility on the Lomonosov Peninsula of the Khasansky District. At the second stage, it is planned to construct the facilities of a cargo terminal and a sea shipping terminal. And the final stage will be the construction of the plant itself, which is scheduled to begin in the 4 quarter of 2018.

Vladimir Miklushevsky, Governor of Primorsky Krai, notes the importance of this project for the region. In November 2013, he signed a Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation in the implementation of a project for the construction of an LNG plant in Primorye with Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee.
