Russia’s Main Department of State Expertise (Glavgosexpertiza) has backed the project on construction of a new production facility as part of Novatek’s Yamal LNG project, utilizing the hydrocarbon resources of the South Tambey Field.

The new facility with annual capacity of 1 million tonnes is planned to be technologically connected with Yamal LNG.

The development is being announced on the back of Yamal LNG achievement of full capacity at the plant’s three LNG trains.

The production at the plant’s third train was launched in November, more than one year ahead of the planned original schedule.

The three liquefaction trains have a total nameplate capacity of 16.5 million metric tonne per annum (mmtpa), or 5.5 mmtpa per LNG train. The project is supported by a fleet of Arc7 ice-class tankers supplemented by lower ice-class designated tankers to transport LNG cargoes. A total of 15 LNG ice-breakers are scheduled to be by the end of 2019.

The joint venture project is owned by Novatek (50.1%), Total (20%), CNPC (20%) and Silk Road Fund (9.9%).
