Сonstruction of an LNG storage tank in the port of Vysotsk has been сompleted

NK-Teplohimmontazh Holding has completed the construction works of an isothermal LNG storage tank with a volume of 42,000 m3 in the port of Vysotsk.

Location: Vyborg district of Leningrad region, 2.5 km from the city of Vysotsk.
Project customer: Cryogaz-Vysotsk.
Construction period: 2016-2019.

The founders of Kriogaz-Vysotsk are Novatek (51 percent) and Gazprombank (49 percent). The company has become the third LNG plant that started working in Russia after Sakhalin-2 and Yamal LNG. It is located in the port of Vysotsk and it is the first medium-tonnage LNG project in the Baltic.

The terminal for the production and transshipment of liquefied natural gas in the port of Vysotsk of the Leningrad Region is an integrated project for the production, storage and shipment of LNG to consumers. The project envisages the construction of an LNG production terminal with a capacity of 660 thousand tons at the resource base of the Leningrad-Vyborg-State Border gas pipeline, consisting of two production lines with a capacity of 40 tons each. The technological process is based on a special gas liquefaction technology based on the use of a multi-component mixed refrigerant, which is a combination of various hydrocarbons with different evaporation temperatures, that ensures complete and effective pre-cooling and further liquefaction of natural gas. As a part of the project, transport infrastructure was created for the shipment of LNG for export, consisting of a shipping zone for sea transport with a berth at the port and a shipping zone for road transport.

During the project implementation, advanced technologies and the latest developments (first of all, domestic production) were used, ensuring minimal environmental impact. The Russian-foreign integration of builders during construction made it possible to combine successful foreign experience in the construction of such projects with the observance of the strict requirements of Russian legislation in terms of gas processing facilities.
