Gazprom and SRDI Oil & Gas Peton have selected the Linde Group as the licenser for a mid scale LNG production, storage and shipment complex in Portovaya, located in Russia at the Baltic Sea.
The plant will liquefy natural gas coming from the nearby compressor station, which is part of Gazprom’s Nord Stream pipeline.
The LNG facility will use Linde's LIMUM® technology. Under the contract with Peton, Linde will perform basic engineering for the process plant and supply the equipment and related bulk material for the cryogenic units of the plant.
Both companies are currently cooperating on other projects, such as the Amur Gas Processing Plant (Amur GPP), located in the far east of Russia.
Professor Dr Aldo Belloni, Chief Executive Officer of Linde AG, said: “Gazprom’s Portovaya LNG Project, which was jointly developed with the Russian engineering holding Peton, is of utmost importance for us as it represents another milestone for the successful strategic cooperation between Gazprom and Linde in the area of cryogenic natural gas processing and liquefaction […] With a yearly capacity of around 1.5 million t of LNG, the plant fits very well into Linde’s LNG plant portfolio, bridging the gap between small- and world-scale LNG projects.”
